Phys.org: A new interactive design tool developed by CMU's Robotics Institute enables both novices and experts to build customized legged or wheeled robots using 3D-printed components and off-the-shelf actuators.
Ross Wilkers for Washington Technology: Boeing has emerged as the winner of a DARPAcompetition to design and test an unmanned reusable spaceplane.
David Gianatasio for AdWeek: Unless youve been lost at sea, youve probably heard about the giant robotic squid that Old Spice deployed last weekend for a wacky, high-profile internet game on Twitch.
Matt Day for Seattle Times: Echodynes radar arrays are designed to bring some of the power and precision of massive, heavy, military-grade radars to a tablet-sized device.
April Glaser for Recode: The court ruled that the FAAs drone registration rules, which have been in place since 2015, were in violation of a law passed by Congress in 2012.
Melia Robinson for Business Insider: On a recent night outside the offices of Knightscope, a robotics startup in the heart of Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man allegedly toppled a five-foot tall, 300-pound robot to the ground.
Red Herring: ELLIQ comprises a tablet screen and a small, bobble-headed assistant, which looks like two bell jars glommed together, that interacts with elderly users, the device and humans on the other end of communication.
Neha Thirani Bagri for Quartz: The drone takes into account things like a vessels size, cargo, and movement, to determine if it might be a security threat. When a "target of interest" is detected, a go-fast boat is launched, and the chase begins.
Ryan Terry for Phys.org: Hur's prior research helped him answer two questions: "Can we predict a fall? Can we then reduce the number of falls?"
Jeremy C. Ownens for MarketWatch: Musk will put his machinery where his mouth is with Model 3, battery and solar panel production lines launching soon
Bİrİnice Magistretti for VentureBeat: Picking apples may seem like a fun weekend activity, but its actually backbreaking manual labor. Abundant Robotics wants to help agricultural growers shoulder this task and today announced funding of $10 million, led by GV, to commercialize its apple-picking robot.
WiBotic Announces $2.5 Million in New Funding for its Wireless Power Solutions for the Robotics Industry
Companys Wireless Power and Battery Intelligence Solutions Enable Robots to Operate 100% Autonomously
Evan Ackerman for IEEE Spectrum: Construction seems like an industry that, were I still living in Silicon Valley, I would be tempted to call "ripe for disruption." Researchers at the MIT Media Lab agree, pointing out in a paper just published in Science Robotics that construction "relies on traditional fabrication technologies that are dangerous, slow, and energy-intensive." Hey, sounds like a job for some robots, right?
Brett Molina , USA TODAY: Jack Ma, the founder and chairman of Chinese e-commerce titan Alibaba, predicts "a robot will likely be on the cover of Time magazine as the best CEO" in 30 years, according to published reports.
Hoosier Ag Today: A new poll finds 21 percent of farmers plan to operate a drone this year. The poll found 21 percent of farmers will operate the drone themselves, while another 12 percent of farmers indicated they would opt for a third-party entity to fly drones.

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.
