silkmoth-robot-smellA group of researchers at the University of Tokyo attached a male silkmoth to a free-moving polystyrene ball that can control the movement of a small, two-wheeled robot. According to researchers, the findings will be used to devise better smell tracking algorithms by providing useful suggestions for the application of an insect behavioral model to… »

amanda-walk-in-elegs-exoskeletonBerkeley Bionics developed the first practical exoskeleton and the first untethered exoskeleton in the world. Later on, through a licensed agreement with Lockheed Martin Corporation, they came up with HULC exoskeleton which is meant for military use. A few days ago they unveiled similarly looking eLEGS, a wearable, artificially intelligent, bionic device that powers paraplegics… »

rex-bionics-robotic-exoskeleton-rex-controlsWe already wrote several articles regarding exoskeletons as HULC, HAL-5 and power suit developed for elder Japanese farmers, however, the exoskeleton described in this article differs in its main porpoise. A robotic exoskeleton called Rex puts wheelchair users back on their feet, enabling a person to stand, walk and go up and down the stairs… »

lockheed-martin-hulc-robotic-exoskeletonAfter writing about Japanese HAL-5 robotic exoskeleton, in this article we’re going to write about Human Universal Load Carrier (HULC) robotic exoskeleton. Developed by Lockheed Martin and Berkeley Bionics, the HULC robotic exoskeleton doesn’t boost the arm strength as some of the other robotic exoskeletons (including HAL-5) but it rather increases user’s capability to wear… »
