Digital buttons on Arm

Technology developers at Carnegie Mellon University and Microsoft Research have figured out a way to utilize motion waves on the body to map sensory points as buttons, which create a fully functional interface on the arm when images of buttons with their functions are displayed on top of these points.

Robots with Racquets

In a Zurich lab, at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control, elegantly-mobile robotic mini-choppers are developed for exquisite range of motion and response. The “quadrotors”are made to engage in bouncing balls, perform synchronized dances, balance poles, and play piano. Other research at IDSC includes the development of robots capable of learning tasks and developing response via practice, much like in human learning.
