EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Braden Costin's curator insight, March 22, 2013 2:14 AM

This article focuses on a World Wide Web for Robots. This Internet collects and stores all data that a robot has collectyed throughout it's day. Other Robots would be able to access this internet in the form of a query to an unknown problem. Essentially if one Robot takes a step forward so does every other. This would allow for lighter and smaller robots as they would only have to query the internet for any problems rather than going through memory for the solution.

Human, AI and Robotics: Man Walks With Aid of Brain-Controlled Robotic Legs for the First Time

Human, AI and Robotics: Man Walks With Aid of Brain-Controlled Robotic Legs for the First Time | Robotics in the Future | Scoop.it

Walking on a treadmill is no great feat, unless your legs are being moved by a robotic device connected to your brain. A new brain-computer interface allows a person to walk using a pair of mechanical leg braces controlled by brain signals (above), as reported on arXiv. The device has only been tested on able-bodied people, and while it has limitations, it lays a foundation for helping people with paralysis walk again. The new device — developed by researchers at the Long Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the University of California, Irvine – is controlled by electroencephalogram, or EEG, signals generated by small voltage fluctuations in the brain. The method is completely noninvasive, as the signals are measured by a cap worn on the scalp.

The article shows the use of robotic limbs that are currently being experimented with this is an amazing technology for people that have lost there arms or legs and previously nothing could be done to restore function to the severed arm or leg. The release of medical robotics such as this will surley affect many lives around the world now and in the future where the advances in medical robotics can only improve.

Will you be ready for the robotic traffic jam in your future home? - Delving Into Dynamics - Microsoft Dynamics CRM - Microsoft Dynamics Community

Microsoft Dynamics Community
Hayden Theuerkauf's insight:

Not so far into the future, we might find ourselves with several robots running around the house doing everyday chores such as cleaning the floor and dishes to answering the phone, and alerting you when someone has called you. Not only will robots be able to do that but they will also be able to look after children and the elderly. There may even be an overload of robots in the house that there may not be enough space for all of them to move about and do there job that they were built to do. This just shows how fast technology and the area of robotics is growing and will continue to grow into the future.

You may soon be sharing the road with intelligent, self-driving cars that promise to save time, fuel, cut traffic jams and prevent accidents.
Hayden Theuerkauf's insight:

This article/website gives information on robotic cars. Very interesting, there has already been laws made in the U.S for autonomous cars to share the roads with humans. However a couple more years and there will be autonomous cars driving on the roads on a regular basis, and some say this will be the future of safer roads.

Domestic Drones on Patrol

Domestic Drones on Patrol | Robotics in the Future | Scoop.it
Companies, universities and lawmakers in the United States are preparing for a world in which remote-controlled planes will be ubiquitous in civilian air space.

Via Kalani Kirk Hausman
Hayden Theuerkauf's insight:

The particular website shows how drones are becoming more and more popular and very soon, we could see alot of these flying in our skies. Some say these drones could do more bad then they could do good, however they could be used for scouting crops or insect infestations to checking out fires and alerting the controller to how dangerous the fire really is. No matter which way you put it these drones that are starting to emerge really will change the future and how things are done.

Braden Costin's curator insight, March 22, 2013 2:23 AM

This article focuses on UAV's (Unmaned Areial Vechile). Domestic UAV's could have the potential inspect a plant crop for signs of blight or insect infestation in a fraction of the time a human would, saftey missions, areial survalence e.c.t there are many possibilities for a drone. 

cassian bulger's curator insight, March 22, 2013 5:41 AM

While these drones do have combat potential i believe it is important to look past that and see other potentials for unmanned arial vechiles (UAV) such UAV's could be used in crop dusting and ariel survalience of areas to aid in search and rescue operations so while they do have the potential to do alot of bad in the terms of warfare they also have the potential to do alot of good depending on how people use them.

Groundbreaking Virtual Robotics Allow Us Our Very Own Robot Avatar

Groundbreaking Virtual Robotics Allow Us Our Very Own Robot Avatar | Robotics in the Future | Scoop.it

A research group lead by Professor Tachi at Keio University in Japan is currently working on one of the first incarnations of an avatar that incorporates some pretty cool virtual robotics technology. By slipping on a pair of virtual reality gloves and a helmet, you would be able to control and see the world through your avatar’s eyes. The concept behind this virtual robotics technology is really called Telexistence, and it allows us to control a real avatar robot.

Hayden Theuerkauf's insight:

This particular website gives information on the creation of avatar/robots that humans will be able to control. This will change the future, technology will allow humans to create there own avatar in the form of a robot, allowing humans to stay home whilst there avatar/robot goes out to do there daily needs or to even do there jobs at a single touch of a button, this technology will vastly change how the world works and runs.

A step up from remote controlled robots doing dangerous jobs, saving potential lives. This could allow for more dextrous and accurate controls without the remote-control middleman and instead with direct input.

 

If these were to make it into society then it could vastly change the structure of things, with work being done without even leaving the home.

cassian bulger's curator insight, March 22, 2013 5:38 AM

Technology such as this which provides an avatar that can be operated remotely has infinite potential to make the lives of countless people easyer such robots provide an "out of body" experience and when perfected can enable working remotly and remotly carrying out daily chores. With strides like this technology is taking remarkable strides into how we are shaping our future.

James's curator insight, March 21, 2013 6:29 AM

Surgical robots have the potential to be more accurate and precise than the dexterity of a human, however it is limited only to what the machine is capable of. It would also require precise calibration if its to perform surgery on humans.

 

If this were to be developed further than it could allow trained professionals to do jobs remotely or possibly even have the machine entirely automated.
