Digital Fabrication in Architecture

Feb. 17, 2017 — Society faces enormous challenges in constructing high-quality, future-oriented built environments. Construction sites today look much like the building sites did at the beginning of the 20th ... read more

Jan. 26, 2017 — Surgeons have operated on a patient with retinal vein occlusion using a surgical robot. Operated by an eye surgeon, the robot uses a needle of barely 0.03 millimeter to inject a thrombolytic drug ... read more

Jan. 26, 2017 — Autonomous systems -- like driverless cars -- perform tasks that previously could only be performed by humans. In a new article, artificial intelligence ethics experts argue that current safety ... read more

Jan. 25, 2017 — Adhesive mechanisms in the natural world have many advantages: they are always strongly adhesive -- and without any glues or residues. Scientists are researching how these mechanisms can be ... read more

Passing the Chemical Turing Test: Making Artificial and Real Cells Talk

Jan. 25, 2017 — The classic Turing test evaluates a machine's ability to mimic human behavior and intelligence. To pass, a computer must fool the tester into thinking it is human -- typically through the use of ... read more

Jan. 24, 2017 — Underwater robots offer scientists an extraordinary new tool to study ocean currents and the tiny creatures they transport. Swarms of these underwater robots helped answer some basic questions about ... read more

Jan. 18, 2017 — A customizable soft robot that fits around a heart and helps it beat has now been developed by researchers, potentially opening new treatment options for people suffering from heart ... read more

Jan. 18, 2017 — Researchers have developed a general framework to design reconfigurable metamaterials. The design strategy is scale independent, meaning it can be applied to everything from meter-scale architectures ... read more

Jan. 18, 2017 — Researchers have developed a process enabling the production of a two millimeter flat camera. Similar to the eyes of insects, its lens is partitioned into 135 tiny facets. Following nature‘s model, ... read more

Jan. 13, 2017 — The variety of car models has increased significantly over the past decades. Take Volkswagen: In 1950, the automaker produced just two model ranges – the Beetle and the transporter. Long gone are ... read more

Jan. 4, 2017 — Researchers have developed a way to manufacture microscale-sized machines from biomaterials that can safely be implanted in the body. Working with hydrogels, they have invented a new technique that ... read more

Jan. 4, 2017 — A new study has introduced a new artificial leaf that generates hydrogen, using the power of the Sun to mimic underwater ... read more

Novel Hardware-Based Modeling Approach for Multi-Robot Tasks

Dec. 29, 2016 — Technological revolution means robots no longer are the song of the future. The Governor of the Bank of England predicts today that up to half of British workforce face redundancy in the imminent ... read more

Dec. 27, 2016 — Controls engineers have developed practical strategies for building and coordinating scores of sensor-laden balloons within hurricanes. Using onboard GPS and cellphone-grade sensors, each drifting ... read more
