Researchers develop robotic hand having the feeling of pain

Robotic hand with feeling of pain

We have come to a point where robots look so convincing you’ll look twice to confirm. But what about their ability to feel things like us? That is a complicated ability which requires a lot of research. Giving us all a new way to look at future robots who’ll look, behave and feel just like humans, Cornell have developed an advanced robotic hand. Headed by Robert Shepherd, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and principal investigator of Organic Robotics Lab, the robotic hand has feelings in its limbs.

This 3D printed car and solar-powered house can charge each other

Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy 3D printed car and house

Researchers from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ONRL) have developed a new way to power homes and vehicles which gives a glimpse into the self-sustainable future. Called as AMIE (Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy) this bold take on how a car can power a home and vice versa is absolutely incredible. To do this the team made use of large scale 3D printing to create design if both the prototype home and vehicle.
