Harvard scientists develop first autonomous soft robot

1472150296146
Meet the octobot, a unique new creation out of Harvard that the university says could be the first step in a new kind of bot. This totally soft robot has eight movable legs, just like its flesh-and-blood marine cousin, which was the inspiration for the device. Created partially through 3-D printing, the octobot is autonomous, according to Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Its power source is hydrogen peroxide, which together with a catalyst of platinum, creates gas that travels into the bot’s appendages to move them.

GOAT legs will let future robots handle rough terrain with ease

MjgwMDkyMg A Master’s Thesis by CMU’s Simon Kalouche posits a new form of robotic leg, one designed for maximum range of motion and, more importantly, an easily control method for force reduction. In other words, this is the kind of leg you want on your robot when you send it to Mars. GOAT stands for Gearless Omni-directional Acceleration-vectoring Topology and uses a single motor and… Read More
