Manufacturing Gangnam Style - Manufacturing Innovation Blog | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Rethink Robotics, the firm that designed and manufactured Baxter the famous industrial robot, has met its match. Robotis’ Bioloid, an educational DIY robotics set, has developed a new, hipper cousin to Baxter that dances – Gangnam Style.  And no wonder. Baxter is a “serious robot” who has a job at Vanguard Plastics, a Connecticut manufacturer. He doesn’t have time to goof off.

The Third Industrial Revolution

The Third Industrial Revolution | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

From the year 2000 to 2010 the number of manufacturing jobs in America fell by about a third. The rise of outsourcing and offshoring and the growth of sophisticated supply chains has enabled companies the world over to use China, India and other lower-wage countries as workshops. Now, the global financial crisis has people thinking it is time their countries returned to making stuff in order to create jobs and prevent more manufacturing skills from being lost. These factors, and technologies like robotics, 3D printing and artificial intelligence could help bring about a Third Industrial Revolution.

Lego Robot Folds and Flings a Paper Airplane

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.

cassian bulger's curator insight, March 22, 2013 5:33 AM

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.

A world without limits

New technologies are blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual world. The brain can control a machine, and even perceive it as its own body. Can that improve our lives?

At Barcelona University, scientists are working on a European Research Project to link a human brain to a robot using skin electrodes and video goggles so that the user feels they are actually in the android body wherever it is in the world.

The electrodes measure brain impulses enabling a person to control the robot's actions without moving their own limbs. The idea is to enable severely disabled people to enter the world via a real-life avatar.

Using a remote avatar, anyone can travel without leaving home. But to make the experience feel more realistic, several senses need to work together.

In a laboratory in Pisa, scientists are testing a chair that vibrates in time with 3D video playback, recreating some of the physical aspects of walking.

An even deeper immersion into the virtual world becomes possible with robotic exoskeletons that simulate physical interactions, and with advanced 3D projection systems.

Touching virtual objects, feeling their texture and weight, will make the digital world more natural and easier to live in.

But what if virtual models could change the real world, making it more accessible? That's the goal of another European project involving hundreds of diabled people in several countries.

Scientists use cameras and sensors to study how physically impaired people move, getting a better idea of their average physical limitations.

The data is used to simulate how motor-impaired people cope with various tasks - such as opening the glove compartment in a car.

With these models, industrial designers will know in advance how safe and convenient their new products are, and can adapt them better for users with physical limitations.

Seeing the screen through the eyes of someone with advanced glaucoma, using the mouse as a person with tremors... makes it easier to understand other people's physical challenges, helping us move towards a world without limits.

Xianxingzhe (lit. "Pioneer" or "Forerunner"), was completed in 2000 after more than a decade of research. It is considered China's first humanoid robot.
