This article explains how automating with industrial robots can help companies to bring their manufacturing home without any adverse effects on their competitiveness. Read more....
General Electric’s Jack Welch famously said in the 1980s that the continued competitiveness of American industry hinged around manufacturers having to decide whether to “automate, emigrate or evaporate”.

NXTLOG user hknssn13 built this amazing paper airplane machine. My favorite part is the 4th stage, where four linear actuators make the final folds in the airplane. It looks sick when the entire assembly rises up!
This is an AMAZING engineering feat. Great for CTE-STEM students to study and think about.
inovative ideas such as these making robotics available to the general public are ingenious in my opinion as they help society adapt to robotics aswell as bring the awe in seeing what you can create.
Advances in hardware and software, from new processing paradigms to design and simulation, are changing the robotics landscape.

The Nordex manufactured turbine at Hamburg’s port isn’t being left entirely to the elements as BASF implements modern manufacturing technologies to protect the construction
It used to be too dangerous to have a person work alongside a robot. But at a South Carolina BMW plant, next-generation robots are changing that.
Artist and engineer Johnathan Tippett is a man with a mad vision. He and his team are building Prosthesis, the world’s first human-controlled racing “anti-robot.” Prosthesis is a four-legged steel beast rising three stories high and weighing 7 tons. Unlike ordinary robots, the battery-powered giant requires a human pilot to steer it. “The machine itself is built to race, but it is just as much about the pilot as it is about the technology,” Tippett writes on the crowdsourcing website Indiegogo. “Having no automated controls, its performance is entirely dependent on the person strapped into the cockpit. Piloting Prosthesis will not be easy. It will take focus, skill and athleticism. It will take grit.”
Paralyzed by a stroke, Henry Evans uses a telepresence robot to take the stage – and show how new robotics, tweaked and personalized by a group called Robots for Humanity, help him live his life.
Very moving TED talk.
