Powered by a wireless electromagnetic field, this magnetic folding robot arm can grasp and bend due to its pattern of origami-inspired folds, suggesting strong medical applications.
A vine-like robot can grow across long distances without moving its whole body, opening the door to search and rescue operations and medical applications.
Researchers’ development could make energy storage devices, such as batteries, just as fast as the speedy supercapacitors that are used to provide energy in an emergency.
A new deep learning algorithm can diagnose 14 types of heart rhythm defects better than cardiologists. This could speed diagnosis and improve treatment for those in rural areas.
Engineers can make even sensor-loaded drones as small as a bumble bee, but how do they miniaturise the computer chip – so minidrones can one day fly themselves?
Bluetooth and sensing technology reports the remaining service-life of military bridging systems. The technology detects the stress and strain on bridges designed for use by tanks such as the over 60-tonne Challenger 2.
