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.
Despite all of the new tools, drones are still only used in about 10 percent of film productions where a camera drone and crew can cost less than $3,000 compared to $25,000 for a helicopter shoot.
Anirban Nag for Bloomberg: Robots to offset negative impact of slower labor force growth. Emerging markets wont be so lucky, Moodys report says
James Anderton for Engineering.com: Robotics are an ideal technology for fine assembly tasks, such as those in the electronics industry.
The biomechanically inspired machine that is discussed in this paper refers to the antagonistic muscles pairs, which belongs to the Skeletal Muscles and are normally arranged in opposition so that as one group of muscles contract another group relaxes or lengthens.
Ross Wilkers for Washington Technology: Boeing has emerged as the winner of a DARPAcompetition to design and test an unmanned reusable spaceplane.
Collaborative robots need safe, sensitive and flexible end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) and there were many vendors - and some breakthrough technologies - demonstrated at the two shows.
Advanced robotics will make jobs such as harvesting easier for farmers. In time, when robots finally learn how to harvest each individual crop, farms will be able to produce more yields for human consumption.
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.
Quora via Forbes: I think we'll see this across industries where basic tasks that can be easily automated eventually will be, and it will pave the way for a workforce that is more productive and efficient.
Trend Micro recently released the first in-depth, hands-on research that demonstrates the extent to which industrial robots can be compromised.
Ellen Huet for Bloomberg: A Silicon Valley startup is the guardian of the building blocks of robot life.
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.

Simpler, stronger, and more precise. ATI Industrial Automation has developed a series of Manual Tool Changers that provides a cost-effective solution for quickly changing tools by hand. They feature a unique design that combines high strength, excellent repeatability, and a patent-pending screw-cam locking mechanism with multiple fail-safe features, which resists vibration and prevents loosening. These robust and compact Manual Tool Changers can handle payloads up to 80 pounds (36 kg) and pass pneumatics and electrical signals.
