Drones will eventually be "as ubiquitous as pigeons", London-based futurist Liam Young recently predicted. They will be used for a lot of different tasks. One overlooked drone application even has the potential to become a trillion dollar business. And to save the world.
From Lyndsey Gilpin for TechRepublic: The DARPA Finals will be held in Pomona, California from June 5-6, and the robots that come out of it could make some big impacts (or take over the world). Here's a summary of what you should know. 1. It began with the desire to improve humanitarian assistance and disaster relief The Fukushima disaster in Japan in 2011 was an inspiration for the competition, according to Dr. Gill Pratt, the DRC program manager. The team realized we never know what the next disaster will be, but we need technology to help us better address these types of disasters with better tools and techniques. And robots have massive potential. "The particular part that we've chosen to focus on, here, is technology for responding during the emergency part of the disaster during the first day or two," Pratt said in a media briefing several weeks before the competition. "So this is not about, for instance, robotics for doing the restoration of the environment many, many weeks, years after the disaster, but rather the emergency response at the beginning." Cont'd..
Overall, the reports that I surveyed were upbeat, predicting exponential growth for all unmanned vehicles.

New industrial oven with "pill pushing" robotic gantry precisely removes excess moisture from 3D-printed pharmaceuticals
A leading pharmaceutical manufacturer approached Thermal Product Solutions with a request to develop an oven that would uniformly remove excess moisture from 3D-printed prescription medications. Gruenberg engineers designed and developed a new custom industrial oven with an external robotic gantry, heat-saving windows, and internal actuators and sensors that precisely positions and dries trays of pills to exact standards.
