After vacuum cleaner Roomba, why we haven't had any other successful home robot products?

Despite persistent optimism, roboticists and AI researchers have painfully learned that while computers can run mathematical circles around humans, things that humans do without thinking are the most difficult for machines.

Tiny, flexible robotic spider could aid future surgeries

The smallest soft robotic systems still tend to be very simple, with usually only one degree of freedom, which means that they can only actuate one particular change in shape or type of movement.

Students in Coimbatore display self-made drones

Coimbatore, Feb 28 (ANI): The students from standard third to eight participated in an International Robotics Festival organised by robotic academy IroboChakra in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore city. They were trained into making simple robots and drones after which they created their own functional robots and displayed the same before the people. The participants made drones, Robo Arms, Power saw, Truck robo, Humanoid among others. The students also explained their creations. The winners of the competition will compete at the international level in May 2016 in the United States. robotic academy.
