The U.S. ranks 31st in math and 24th in science globally. Here are five education bots that are making their way into classrooms and homes to help address that problem.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory designed a robot to navigate debris and drive a car. Roboticists from around the world will gather in Pomona, California, this weekend for the DARPA Robotics Challenge, which was inspired by the Fukushima disaster.
Robotic Process Automation automates complex tasks usually performed by white collar workers. Mihir Shukla is CEO of Automation Anywhere, one of the largest RPA players in the world, and he says it will make us more human and could bring about the next industrial revolution. Here's why.
With advances in rapid prototyping technologies-3D printing in particular-and the rise of cheap off-the-shelf mobile computing platforms like the Raspberry Pi and Arduino, the barrier to entry is lower than ever for upstart hardware visionaries. It's an era where individuals and small collectives can outmaneuver and out-innovate established companies. A look at what's on Kickstarter tells the story.
Earlier this month, a Bay Area startup called StereoLabs quietly introduced the first affordable high definition stereo camera. This is a big deal, and autonomous machines will never be the same. Here's why.
Powered exoskeletons are finally coming of age. The Global Exoskeleton System market is set to grow at a CAGR of 72.51% from 2014-2019, according to a February report by Market Research Reports, Inc. Here are 9 lower limb assist devices you should know about.
Safety and ease-of-use are driving drone innovation. These cool quadcopters can take whatever users can dish out, and that makes them attractive for some rough-and-tumble applications.
Rapid prototyping means more innovation on the hardware side. But inventors and entrepreneurs need to take a holistic approach to reap the benefits of the technology, says one expert. Here's why.
In his new book, Rise of the Robots, Martin Ford argues that a bleak jobless future awaits if we don't take action. Fortunately, he gives us a way forward.
Three reasons you're about to see more hardware in start-up land.
Machines are often portrayed as a threat to the human workforce, but a new class of devices promises to keep industrial workers healthy and productive.
New self-learning systems are bringing increased speed and efficiency to manufacturing processes. They may also reduce reliance on humans during ramp-up.
Check out the latest addition to the most prolific line of consumer quadcopters on the market. Filmmakers rejoice, it comes with 4K.
Robots can play an important role in disaster response and recovery. The technology is there, but the willingness to deploy it hasn't been. Here's why.
Radio astronomers try to close the door on iRobot's wireless mower ambitions. Here's what it means for your lawn.
