Scientists from the Biorobotics Laboratory (BIOROB) at EPFL in Switzerland have developed small robotic modules that can change their shape to create reconfigurable furniture. Like Lego bricks, these robotic pieces, or Roombots, can be stacked upon each other to create various structures. Each piece has three motors that allow the module to pivot with three degrees of freedom, and each also has a battery and wireless connection.

designboom visits the arduino factory in piedmont, italy, where the microcontrollers, kits, and robots are made and assembled in local factories.
Two universities in Australia and two in Europe have created a joint, dual Masters degree program in 3D bioprinting. This program is the first of its kind.
Industrial automation and the defense industry have been at the forefront of robotics development. In 2013 Japan had the most industrial robots at 309,400 units, with the USA in 2nd place with 215,650 units. Large automotive manufacturers like Toyota have been racing to eliminate as many humans from their operations as possible. The demand for industrial robots is accelerating due to the increase in tasks being automated by more complex and refined robots...Read More....

Robots are getting smarter, but they still need step-by-step instructions for tasks they haven’t performed before. Before you can tell your household robot “Make me a bowl of ramen noodles,” you’ll have to teach it how to do that. Since we’re not all computer programmers, we’d prefer to give those instructions in English, just as we’d lay out a task for a child...Read More....
We help companies automate. The robotic and machine automation fields continue to evolve rapidly. Demands to increase productivity continue. Axis provides innovative solutions to manufacturing challenges in many precision industries, including Biomedical, Semiconductor, Defense, and Precision Machining. We find ways to move parts at higher speeds and accelerations. Often, alongside this need for speed is the requirement for accuracy and repeatability. Control systems need to be flexible with an ability to grow with the changing demands of our clients. Part inspection and validation must be fast, reliable, and economical...Read More....
NASA Chief Technologist David Miller and Dorothy Rasco, NASA's deputy associate administrator for Space Technology, will be on hand Saturday, June 14, at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) for this year's Sample Return Robot Challenge awards ceremony. The event will take place at 10 a.m. EDT, during the TouchTomorrow technology festival on campus, showcasing teams and robots, as well as NASA and WPI exhibits in science, robotics and space technology.
When considering automation, the first thing that many people will imagine is a robot. As a result, many of us who work in the design of automated systems find that we receive a lot of questions about robots, some of which suggest an inaccurate understand

By automating tasks, we are liberating human imagination and the human spirit. The more we unlock the secrets of technology, the more we find ourselves.
Has robotics as a technology reached maturity and affordability for smaller manufacturers – it seems yes and no. Years ago future trends in manufacturing frequently imagined completely automated environments and while that hasn’t happened, the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology in 2012  identified robotics as one of 11 top cross-cutting technologies important for […
