The world is still pretty much in lockdown at the moment. While there is still some travel taking place, for the most part it is very restricted and people usually need a good reason to travel to another country. We imagine that eventually the world will return to normal, but if anything, the pandemic has shown us that we need to start taking these types of threats a lot more […]
When you think of Boston Dynamics, you might think of the company’s robots like Spot. However, the company is expanding on the types of robots they are offering where it seems that they have expanded to industrial robots, one of which is called Stretch that can be used in places like warehouses.
You know when you’re at the supermarket and the candy bars are usually located at the checkout counter? It’s there for a reason, it’s meant to tempt shoppers waiting in line to make that impulsive purchase, but if you’ve ever managed to resist the urge to purchase it, good on you.
If you thought that piloting a drone was easy, it’s not. While it might not be too difficult to get it off the ground, getting the drone to fly the way you want and to capture the footage you want does take quite a bit of skill, which is why a recent video footage of a drone flying through a bowling alley in Minnesota has everyone in Hollywood (and the […]
The problem with capturing footage, whether it be photos or videos, of nature is that due to our presence, it can scare away animals and insects and cause them to behave unnaturally. However, researchers might have found a way around it by creating a drone disguised as a hummingbird which allowed them to capture this incredible footage of a swarm of Monarch butterflies that you can check out in the […]
Unmanned combat drones aren’t exactly new. We’ve heard about them and read about them being used in warfare, but it seems that we could be reaching new heights in drone technology. This is thanks to Kelley Aerospace who have managed to craft an unmanned combat drone that can hit speeds of over 1,500mph.
Drone flying typically involves the pilot looking at a screen which streams the drone’s POV through its built-in camera. This is how it’s usually done and for the most part, it works. However, if you’re hoping to have a brand new experience and see through the eyes of the drone, DJI has you covered.
With drones, obviously if you can make them really small they would be inconspicuous and would not be noticed by anyone. However, the downside to small drones is that you would have to sacrifice certain things, like ditching the motor which in turn could make it less effective compared to a drone with a motor.
If you saw a fish swimming in the lakes or rivers or the sea, chances are you probably wouldn’t think twice about it being there. We can only assume that is one of the reasons why a couple of decades ago, the CIA actually created a robotic catfish, which they called Charlie, and used it for intel gathering operations.
Ever wonder what it might be like to fly a drone in a first-person perspective? If you are, then you might be interested to learn that DJI could have such a drone in the works. This is according to an unboxing video by Dominion Drones who seems to have published the video a bit too early.
Cutting someone open to save them is a double-edged sword. This is because of the stress that such an operation could have on the body, which is why robotic surgery is becoming an increasingly popular choice as it can help with minimally invasive surgery thanks to its parts being relatively small, at least compared to our hands and fingers.
The concept of robots aren’t new. We see them in factories where they help to make all kinds of products, but they are exactly common outside of those settings. Sure, you might see a couple if you go to Japan or Korea, but like we said, it’s not very often that you would encounter a robot in a home or in a shop.
Right now, the pandemic is still going on all over the world. While the vaccinations have already begun, it is still generally advised that we should maintain social distancing. To help limit the amount of human-to-human interactions, and possibly to show off its technology, Hyundai has rolled out its DAL-e robot which they will begin piloting at the Hyundai Motor showroom in Seoul, South Korea.
There is something very attractive about robotic vacuuming and mopping because it’s clearly something that no one wants to do. Over the years, we’ve tried quite a few and have kept an eye on the industry ever since.
If you’re really into robots, then Boston Dynamics is most likely a company that you’ve been following. The company has made some pretty impressive strides over the years with its development on robots, and to end the year, the company has released a new video that shows off its robots dancing.
One of the problems that EV owners face right now is the lack of dedicated EV chargers. Unlike gas stations that are ubiquitous, EV charging stations still lack that kind of coverage, which means that drivers need to plan their routes and hope that there’s a spot available. However, Volkswagen is hoping to address part of that problem.
Flying a drone does take some skill, and we’re sure that many drone pilots at the start probably encountered a mishap or two. That being said, sometimes those accidents can be recovered from, but other times, you might have an incident where for whatever reason, your drone is lost during the flying process.
While consumer drones might not have been regulated at the start, they are now by various governing agencies around the world. The laws will vary from country to country, where in some places like the US, drone owners are required to register their drones (unless it weighs under 0.55 pounds) with the FAA.
If you were hoping to get your hands on a new DJI drone in the future, that might be tricky because the US government has since placed DJI on its Entity List, the same list that Huawei is currently on. This spells trouble for the drone maker as they might have some issues finding parts for its products.
As humans start to encroach more into the wild and start building and developing, it starts to displace animals from their natural habitat, which is why we’re seeing more instances of wild animals making their way into urban populations as a result. To help combat this problem, a town over in Japan has decided to employ the use of robot wolves to help deter and scare away these animals.
