Guanhong Hu for Quartz: Shuhei Miyashita and his team used the origami concept to make exoskeletons for a magnetic cube robot, called "Primer", letting it morph on demand to do various things in different conditions.
A self-contained soft actuator three times stronger than natural muscle, without the need of externals, signals a breakthrough in soft robotics.
The module allows rapid development of new robots by providing all the sensors and sensor processing software in one compact, pre-calibrated device with multiple interfaces supported to meet varying developer requirements.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The biomechanics of bipedal walking are preposterously complex. A French firm claims to have built a robotic suit that can emulate the way we walk.
Andrew Cave for Forbes: The Alpine nation is now "the Silicon Valley of robotics," according to Chris Anderson, chief executive of 3D Robotics.
Since the medical and manufacturing industries both handle sensitive materials, the shift to having robots handle them instead can save lives and cut costs.
The process of building a diversified investment portfolio is a substantial advantage for robo-advisors. The account setup process usually takes minutes and knowledgeable investors with a do-it-yourself mentality welcome the ease of executing trades.
Duncan Geere for Tech Radar: Now researchers from Universit© Paris-Saclay are attempting to bestow the same benefits onto robots. Adriana Tapus and her colleagues are aiming to develop a humanoid robot that's sensitive to tactile stimulation in the same way people are.
Tekla S. Perry for IEEE Spectrum: "I'm a big fan of going out and doing a service with a robot, competing with other businesses that provide that service, rather than trying to sell a $100,000 robot,"
Rutgers University-New Brunswick engineers have discovered a simple, economical way to make a nano-sized device that can match the friendly neighborhood Avenger, on a much smaller scale. Their creation weighs 1.6 milligrams (about as much as five poppy seeds) and can lift 265 milligrams (the weight of about 825 poppy seeds) hundreds of times in a row.
ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces: The development, reported in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, could lead to new ways for people to interact with machines and even create self-folding robots.
Reuters: The Siemens research center at Beijing's Tsinghua University would focus on combined mechanics and electronics, human-robot collaboration and the application of artificial intelligence in robotic controllers, the German firm said.
Multilingual correspondence through smartphones can be realized in real time at any time, 365 days, for foreigners' inquiries and requests to visit Japan. The service is in full use offering accommodation facilities like Holiday Inn and Grand Bell Hotel and car rental service "Times Car Rental".
Ian Wright for Engineering.com: The inaugural Robotiq User Conference (RUC) will demonstrate what 80 engineers can do with 40 robots in 24 hours.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Acutronic was set up in 2016, and offers a way to allow components combine in new robotics systems easily with ready-made compliance with industry and commercial standards for easy deployment.

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.
