The Envirobot robo-eel slithers along the shore for science

 The next time you’re swimming in Lake Geneva, don’t be surprised when you feel something eel-like and yet artificial touch your leg. That would be Envirobot, the latest biomimetic creation from Swiss researchers that autonomously swims around bodies of water and tests them for toxins and other factors. Read More

Inside the Las Vegas bar where all the bartenders are robots

Best Las Vegas Bars

Bottoms up, human.

Waiting to greet patrons inside a newly opened bar on the Las Vegas Strip -- across from the Bellagio, in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood -- is yet another reminder that robots are coming. For our jobs, our cars and, it seems, our liquor. The latter, thanks to the Tipsy Robot, a new Las Vegas bar that features two bionic mixologists behind the counter, working in unison to mix and pour drinks.

Tesla has a massive new structure at its Fremont factory

Tesla factory jobs in Fremont

Tesla's new battery "Gigafactory" gets so many headlines that it's easy to forget that the car company does still have another factory. The original Tesla manufacturing facility in Fremont is still where all the cars get built, and new photos show that it's growing at speed.

A report from Electrek shows some distant shots of a new multi-storey building going up on Tesla's property in Fremont. The company hasn't disclosed what it's for, but rampant internet speculation claims that it's a robotic warehouse that could help Tesla hit its wildly ambitious manufacturing goals.

I watched two robots chat together on stage at a tech event

 I got a glimpse into the future world of our robot overlords today. It was nervy at times. I watched two robots go on stage at a tech event to “debate” the future of humanity with each other. The robots in question are Sophia and Han, and they belong to Hanson Robotics, a Hong Kong-based company that is developing and deploying artificial intelligence in humanoids. The duo took to… Read More

Robotic police are about to start patrolling in Dubai

police robot

With the immense wealth of the region, Dubai has quickly become one of the hottest places for companies to test out their newest, wildest future tech. It wasn't long ago that Dubai announced its plans to get flying taxis off the ground by the end of July, so it's quite fitting that robotic police — yes, actual autonomous police robots — will soon be patrolling the bustling city as well. What a time to be alive.

This colonoscopy robot will haunt your dreams

colonoscopy robot

At the 2017 ICRA robotics conference in Singapore, one bot gained a lot of attention for pretty obvious reason: it's designed to explore your butt.

Messing with robots’ self-confidence could prevent the AI apocalypse

science news

In every sci-fi depiction of an eventual robot apocalypse, the mechanical monstrosities move with cold, calculated precision, dispatching or enslaving humanity with a complete lack of sympathy and no second guessing. But what if robots could actually worry? What if mechanical minds didn't know anything with certainty, and lacked the confidence to push forward with risky actions? A team of AI researchers from the University of California at Berkeley think that giving robots built-in anxiety might actually help keep them in line.
