Roboticists discover the secret of insect flight, and it's not wings

Roboticists discover the secret of insect flight, and it's not wings | L'impresa "mobile" | Scoop.it

When it comes to insect flight, we usually only think about how the insect's wings contribute to aerial stability. But scientists have now discovered that the abdominal movements of some insects also play a large role in flight control, particularly when hovering — a finding that could lead to improved aerial drones.

How Robots Are Making Solar Power Cheaper

How Robots Are Making Solar Power Cheaper | L'impresa "mobile" | Scoop.it

Solar panels have gotten so cheap that installers are seeking new ways to push down the cost per clean kilowatt. One answer: Get rid of the humans !

Behind a high fence in Menlo Park, Calif. a gray, tuna-shaped robot glides on a monorail around 20 solar panel arrays attached to steel poles, like WALL-E on a Disneyland ride. The Solbot, made by startup QBotix, stops at each array and extends a cylindrical arm to adjust the angle of the photovoltaic panels so they capture the most amount of sun as it moves across the sky and through the seasons.

Study: Dumb Robots Cause Students To Learn More Quickly

Study: Dumb Robots Cause Students To Learn More Quickly | L'impresa "mobile" | Scoop.it

Students learn faster when learning from robots that make mistakes. The counter-intuitive study finds that Japanese children learn English quicker when they correct the intentional translation errors of a toy robot–exploiting a well-known fact among educators that students learn best when they help teach others.

Although we have yet to perfect an artificial intelligence that can solidly pass the Turing Test, developers are nevertheless endeavoring to create humanoid robots that can mimic our physical attributes. A team from Switzerland aims to take this humanoid robot trend in an interesting new direction by creating a realistic robot boy.

Sometime between 2015 and 2020, the goal is the 'birth of the avatar,' a leap forward in robot/human interaction. Checking our calendars, 2015 isn't that far off for that magnitude of a change in the human experience, even for a project looking to bring about the birth of the 'neo-human.' So how close are we really to achieving it? Here are 10 robots, constructed and ready to transform society's skin.
