To celebrate Earth Day and the numerous efforts to keep Earth clean, Apple created a new robot which will contribute further to the recycling movement has adhered to. Apple Robot Daisy. (Image via Apple)   Global warming, a subject that is rejected by some people as being a hoax, is a term used to talk about the fact that Earth is becoming a warmer planet every moment. While there are many causes for the continuous rise in temperature, some like the use and disposal of electronics are easi ...
I know this isn’t that electronic in nature, but it’s amazing.   Scientists have mutated an enzyme that can break down plastic bottles, and the discovery was made by pure accidental discovery. It's a beneficial discovery because of how it can enable the recycling of plastic bottles which could also help the global plastic pollution issue.   The efficiency of the bacteria decreases the time it takes to consume plastic and makes it more recyclable. The effectiveness will ...
Aquabotix has made a new appearance with scientific studies and some new advancements in their technology. The robotics company has come up with something totally new and different - something that will provide support for research and enhance it based on the drones' studies and what data they're able to gather. The name, SwarmDivers, suggests what it is - a micro unmanned surface vehicle (USV) and underwater unmanned vehicle (UUV) that dives underwater to gather data. The swarm of drones only r ...

We all love the idea of a superhero, we want to see them be real. Some of us strive to make that happen.   One of the most iconic of super hero movie is certainly Iron Man, a man who wears a robotic suit – and probably the most ...
Cambridge University created a robot mimic named Charles. Charles still has a lot to learn but he is really good at reproducing people’s facial expressions. Charles mimics a subject next to him: Charles on the right, subject on the left. (Image via Cambridge University)   In a quest to verify how applying human behaviors to robots improve their interactions with people, Cambridge University’s department of technology created the robot known as Charles. The secret of CharlesR ...
Nature has inspired scientific creation again, which led to the creation of a flic-flac robot spider. BionicWheelBot in rolling position. (Image via Festo.com)   Japan’s bullet train design came from a bird, the kingfisher while the calla lily flower inspired a water mixer. The bumps on the fin of humpback whales proved to be the reason the fish is so agile when out of water, which therefore inspired a wind turbine. Those examples of biomimicry are just the tip of the iceberg when it ...
