MIT’s ‘Smart Sand’ Can Duplicate Any Object

MIT’s ‘Smart Sand’ Can Duplicate Any Object

There was a small plastic flower in a hat. Then we heard Abra-ca-dabra! ‘Alakazam!’ ‘Ta Da!’ (Magical Words used by magicians while showing magic) and the flower turns into a cute Rabbit. Isn’t that interesting? Could be. But this is not magic. Distributed Robotics Laboratory (DRL) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT’s) Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has developed a new algorithm which is an exciting fast prototyping tool. It’s name is ‘Smart Sand.’ and it can duplicate any object easily. Is it called the real magic? Abra-ca-dabra!!!

HUME : A Bipedal Robot For Human Centered Hyper Agility

HUME : A Bipedal Robot For Human Centered Hyper Agility

Robots are made to understand the physical capabilities and physiology of human movement for use in the design of machines with similar abilities. This time, scientists analysis this robots’ based on their performances as a function of speed, agility and efficiency, where speed is the center of mass absolute velocity, agility is the complexity of traversable terrain and efficiency is the cost of transport. Engineers at Meka Robotics and the University of Texas at Austin want to be the first to build a bipedal robot named Hume with Parkour skills. Hume has been designed to achieve the skill of Human-Centered Hyper-Agility (HCHA).

The World’s Most Powerful Non-Destructive Magnet

The World’s Most Powerful Non-Destructive Magnet

Generating a non-destructive 100 Tesla magnetic field has been a project of the Los Alamos National Lab for about a decade and a half. Theory of Magnetic Field is quiet interesting. Recently, researchers have hooked up a huge nested magnet to a bigger generator that kicks out a pulse 2 million times stronger than the Earth’s magnetic field. This magnet is being called the world’s most powerful non-destructive magnet. And guess what? It screams like a Banshee while in the process. A magnet screams? Lets find out…

See Hidden Things Through A Camera

See Hidden Things Through A Camera

Can you see or tell, what thing is there behind a wall that you can’s see? Not possible for you. Because your eyes can’t split the wall. But a camera can do the work for you. Laser experts at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reported on Tuesday that they have succeeded in using an experimental camera to capture 3D images of objects which is even capable of detecting hidden things. Seems like, a camera becomes an X-ray machine. Now, you see the hidden things through a camera.

MIT Software Optimizes Paths For Automated Underwater Vehicles

MIT Software Optimizes Paths For Automated Underwater Vehicles

Figuring out the best route for many underwater vehicle like ‘swarm’ is a monumentally complex problem. But, MIT researchers have developed new software and methods that can predict optimal paths for automated underwater vehicles. The purpose is to teach the “swarms” of undersea robots: how to effectively draw paths for us. The team is going to present their mathematical procedure in May at the annual IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation.
