Thumbs-up for mind-controlled robotic arm (12/21/2014)

Thumbs-up for mind-controlled robotic armA paralyzed woman who controlled a robotic arm using just her thoughts has taken another step towards restoring her natural movements by controlling the arm with a range of complex hand movements. ...> Full Article


Team publishes new findings from mind-controlled robot arm project (12/20/2014)

Team publishes new findings from mind-controlled robot arm projectIn another demonstration that brain-computer interface technology has the potential to improve the function and quality of life of those unable to use their own arms, a woman with quadriplegia shaped the almost human hand of a robot arm with just her thoughts to pick up big and small boxes, a ball, an oddly shaped rock, and fat and skinny tubes. ...> Full Article


First steps for Hector the robot stick insect (12/19/2014)

First steps for Hector the robot stick insectA research team at Bielefeld University has succeeded in teaching the only robot of its kind in the world how to walk. Its first steps have been recorded in a video. You can watch them in Bielefeld University's latest posting on 'research_tv'. The robot is called Hector, and its construction is modeled on a stick insect. ...> Full Article


Organic electronics could lead to cheap, wearable medical sensors (12/18/2014)

Organic electronics could lead to cheap, wearable medical sensorsUniversity of California Berkeley researchers have created a pulse oximeter, commonly used to measure heart rate and blood oxygen levels, using all organic materials instead of silicon. The advance could lead to cheap, flexible sensors that could be used like a Band-Aid. ...> Full Article


Artificial life expert: We are in danger of losing control of our technology and our lives (12/17/2014)

Artificial life expert: We are in danger of losing control of our technology and our livesFuture technology will be more intelligent and more living than most people can imagine today. We need clear guidelines on how to implement and use technology, or else citizens will lose their rights to their identity and their life. This is the prediction by Danish professor and expert in artificial life in a new international book about the future of technology. ...> Full Article


New 'electronic skin' for prosthetics, robotics detects pressure from different directions (12/16/2014)

Touch can be a subtle sense, but it communicates quickly whether something in our hands is slipping, for example, so we can tighten our grip. For the first time, scientists report the development of a stretchable 'electronic skin' closely modeled after our own that can detect not just pressure, but also what direction it's coming from. The study on the advance, which could have applications for prosthetics and robotics, appears in the journal ACS Nano. ...> Full Article


New research will help robots know their limits (12/14/2014)

A team of UK researchers is embarking on a collaborative project to ensure that the autonomous robots we build in the future will be safer, making decisions that are ethical and follow legislation on robotics. ...> Full Article


Engineer applies robot control theory to improve prosthetic legs (12/13/2014)

Research led by Dr. Robert Gregg of the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science enables powered prosthetics to dynamically respond to the wearer's environment and help amputees walk. Wearers of the robotic leg could walk on a treadmill almost as fast as an able-bodied person. ...> Full Article


Researchers develop clothes that can monitor and transmit biomedical info on wearers (12/6/2014)

Researchers develop clothes that can monitor and transmit biomedical info on wearersResearchers at Université Laval's Faculty of Science and Engineering and Centre for Optics, Photonics and Lasers have developed smart textiles able to monitor and transmit wearers' biomedical information via wireless or cellular networks. This technological breakthrough clears a path for a host of new developments for people suffering from chronic diseases, elderly people living alone, and even firemen and police officers. ...> Full Article


Could artificial intelligence put words into Stephen Hawking's month? (12/5/2014)

Could artificial intelligence put words into Stephen Hawking's month?Can machines think? Are they conscious of their own attempts to recognize the problem, and understand the problem by forming a perception from sensory information gathered and concepts stored in our memories -- so as to develop a strategy, either inductively and deductively, to work out a solution and make a decision to act on an option?Igor Aleksander examines the issue of machine consciousness in his new edition of his book Impossible Minds. ...> Full Article


An eel-lectrifying future for autonomous underwater robots (12/4/2014)

An eel-lectrifying future for autonomous underwater robotsA team in Singapore has developed and built a prototype for an eel-like robotic fish to be operable remotely, small, sophisticated and intelligent enough to operate autonomously underwater. A new form of central pattern generator model is presented, by which the swimming pattern of a real Anguilliform fish is successfully applied to the robotic prototype. Mathematical model, control law design, different locomotion patterns, and locomotion planning are presented for an Anguilliform robotic fish. ...> Full Article


The artificial pancreas shown to improve the treatment of type 1 diabetes (12/3/2014)

The artificial pancreas shown to improve the treatment of type 1 diabetesThe world's first clinical trial comparing three alternative treatments for type 1 diabetes was conducted in Montreal by researchers at the institut de recherches cliniques de Montreal and the University of Montreal. The study confirms that the external artificial pancreas improves glucose control and reduces the risk of hypoglycemia compared to conventional diabetes treatment. ...> Full Article


Device controls brain activity to maximize therapy (12/2/2014)

Device controls brain activity to maximize therapyResearchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center are trying to help patients who have suffered a stroke improve their arm movement by stimulating the brain using a device called a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulator (TMS). By using TMS to reduce brain activity on the side of the brain that was not injured by the stroke, the injured side may have a better chance of recovering. ...> Full Article


Wireless electronic implants stop staph, then dissolve (12/1/2014)

Wireless electronic implants stop staph, then dissolveFor the first time, researchers have demonstrated a resorbable electronic implant that eliminated bacterial infection in mice by delivering heat to infected tissue when triggered by a remote wireless signal. The silk and magnesium devices then harmlessly dissolved. This is an important step forward for future development of on-demand medical devices that can be turned on remotely to perform a therapeutic function, such as managing post-surgical infection, and then degrade in the body. ...> Full Article


Novel robotic walker helps patients regain natural gait (11/30/2014)

Novel robotic walker helps patients regain natural gaitA team of researchers from the National University of Singapore's Faculty of Engineering has invented a novel robotic walker that helps patients carry out therapy sessions to regain their leg movements and natural gait. The system also increases productivity of physiotherapists and improves the quality of rehabilitation sessions. ...> Full Article
