3D Printed Robot Mimics Human Emotions

3D Printed Robot Mimics Human Emotions

What do you think of when you hear the word “robot?” You probably don’t think of emotions. Human beings are described as robotic if they lack emotion. Robotic and human seem polar opposites. But now researchers at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) have developed a humanoid robot that mimics human emotions, delivering […]

Partially 3D Printed C-Turtle Robots Crawl and Adapt in the Desert

Partially 3D Printed C-Turtle Robots Crawl and Adapt in the Desert

Sea turtles are amazing creatures, and if you’ve ever seen one in the wild, you’re very lucky. If you never get a chance to see a sea turtle up close, though, you still might be able to get a good look at a C-Turtle. Unlike their shelled counterparts, C-Turtles are desert creatures, though they can […]

Robots with a Mission: 3D Printed Garbage Collectors Prepare to Descend on Beaches

Robots with a Mission: 3D Printed Garbage Collectors Prepare to Descend on Beaches

In 2011, a devastating earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, killing more than 15,000 people and injuring and/or displacing hundreds of thousands of others. The effects of the tsunami were felt on the other side of the world, too, as far away as Canada. Erin Kennedy noticed those effects one day while walking along the Toronto […]

R&D Tax Credit Aspects of 3D Printed Robotic Components

R&D Tax Credit Aspects of 3D Printed Robotic Components

Many robotic parts are geometrically intricate and require hours of design and fabrication to make sure all connecting parts match. With 3D printing, the printer can accurately form the needed angles and perforations for many robotic components while doing it efficiently and cost effectively as less material will be used or wasted in production. Many […]
