Maxon have just released their new 24pg Pancake Motor Brochure.
A research project at Harvard aims to demonstrate an autonomous multi-robot systems capable of the construction of 3D structures. The hardware comprises a mobile robot and specialized passive blocks; the robot is able to manipulate blocks to build desired structures, and can maneuver on these structures as well as in unstructured environments. To illustrate the robot’s ability to perform complex tasks combining these functions, they demonstrate it autonomously building a ten-block structure significantly larger than itself. The full paper can be found here .
ROBOTICS will be a major driver for global job creation over the next five years. The announcement is based on a study conducted by the market research firm, Metra Martech, "Positive Impact of Industrial Robots on Employment", which was published on Thursday in Tokyo.
From the video its hard to tell what technology is behind this robot but heres the Google translation of the press release: Communication robots for the elderly "Nodding Kabochan SMILE SUPPLEMENT ROBOT" Launched mid-November! Pumpkin is not nodding, communication robots for the elderly in the shape of a little boy. The reaction of five sensors that are built, or nodding, He makes a variety of chat depending on the season. To take advantage of robot technology, the elderly, who also receive care, How to care for, and further engaged in the business who care, safe delivery and a smile will help to improve life.

Four New Types of Robots Aimed for Commercialization from 2013
Parallel-link robot deployments will continue to see strong growth as more and more operations across all industries embrace automation as a way to cut costs and stay completive. When light payloads and very fast cycle times are required, whether it be assembly, picking, dispensing, or any number of other applications, parallel-link robots will continue to meet the challenge.
Robotic machining has additionally introduced new possibilities for surface texturing on the stone surface, significantly adding to the aesthetics, presenting an innovative and pleasing artistic appearance. The textures would be difficult if not impossible to achieve by any other production process.
