The Artisans Asylum in Boston Massachusetts s a non-profit community craft studio. In their next robotics class their goals are fairly simple: build a car-sized two-person hexapod robot and ride it. What makes their plans different from the scribbling of every 12 year old who just found Japanese animation is that the guys teaching the class have worked on projects real projects like Boston Dynamics PETMAN, AlphaDog and BigDog. Hizook does a good job of summarizing what Artisans Asylum is and Stompy. The project is still in the conceptual stages but the team has a blog with some of the tests and presentations they've done so far.

The ExoHand from Festo is an exoskeleton that can be worn like a glove. The fingers can be actively moved and their strength amplified; the operator's hand movements are registered and transmitted to the robotic hand in real time. The fingers can be actively moved and their strength amplified; the operator’s hand movements are registered and transmitted to the robotic hand in real time. The objectives are to enhance the strength and endurance of the human hand, to extend humans’ scope of action and to secure them an independent lifestyle even at an advanced age. .

Patent-Pending Vertical Arresting System From Macron Dynamics Opens New Possibilities For Use Of Belt Driven Actuators In Vertical Automation Applications
Macron Dynamics has introduced a new patent-pending arresting system designed for belt driven actuators used in vertical automation applications. Macron's CLAWS adds a level of security in the event of a belt failure that, until now, did not exist. In the rare instance of belt breakage or failure, CLAWS engages and prevents the vertically-oriented load from falling. In addition, belt driven linear actuators provide some distint advantages over alternatives that have previously been used in vertical motion applications, including travel length and speed.

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
