‘Terminator’ Arm is World’s Most Advanced Prosthetic Limb
A father who lost his arm in an accident six years ago has been given a new lease of life by a hi-tech bionic hand which is so precise he can type again. Nigel Ackland, 53, has been fitted with the Terminator-like carbon fibre mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm. The new bebionic3 myoelectric hand, which is also made from aluminium and alloy knuckles, moves like a real human limb by responding to Nigel’s muscle twitches.
“Electrically-Charged Hydrogel has applications for soft robotics and biomedical fields”
“Robot uses steerable needles to treat brain clots”
Surgery to relieve the damaging pressure caused by hemorrhaging in the brain is a perfect job for a robot.
Researchers at Columbia Univ. Medical Center, working with their collaborators at the Hospital for Special Surgery, have created a fleet of molecular “robots” that can home in on specific human cells and mark them for drug therapy or destruction.
Objectives: The process outlined in this work uses inexpensive, compliant photo-patternable materials with the ability to embed components to combine the benefits of small-scale robots with the robustness and compliance improvements in larger-scale robots.
Video overview of the ETH Flying Machine Arena (FMA) as of 2010. The FMA is an indoor 1000-cubic meter volume dedicated for research in autonomous systems and aerial robotics. It’s located in Zurich, Switzerland.
They are designing an “autonomous underwater vehicle” that someday may surpass what nature has provided as a model. The vehicle has potential commercial and military applications, and could be used for undersea exploration and scientific research. Sometimes called “bio-mimicry” – the attempt to copy nature – Bart-Smith calls her work “bio-inspired.”
