The development of robotics has yet again astonish the most knowledgeable technology enthusiast. Recent growths include those of robotic ants and butterflies in addition to two huge companies working concurrently on the advances of robotic surgery.
In the previous years, people watched shows on the television a semi-robotic man and a semi-robotic woman. Few of them believe that they could actually witness semi-robotic creatures come into existence. As of today a group of mechanical faunas by Festo, a robotics company, is growing. A group of ants and a butterfly android has just been presented by the German robotics company.
These robotic animals are a portion of the company’s Bionic Learning Network. According to CNET, the ant automatons are called BionicANTS and they can function together. The insect’s group brainpower and the appearance are the inspiration for these robotic ants. The ants connect and synchronize their movements and actions considerably like normal ants.
Like the BionicANTS, the eMotionButterflies also have a cooperative behavior. The ants have a weightless structure that allows them to fly together. These robotic insects are lightweight, despite their complicated structure and astonishing abilities. They are not planned for consumer production but they will help the future researchers and developers into the fuel robot development.
With the advanced robotics in mind, Google is combining its intellectual property and possessions with Ethicon, a part of Johnson & Johnson, to improve robotics to help surgeons. According to the Wall Street Journal blog, no monetary conditions have been revealed at this moment. The agreement is expected to close in the second quarter, which will emphasize on minimally-invasive surgery.
The use of robotics to do particular procedures is currently done by surgeons. Including prenatal and prostate surgeries, many have heard of the DA Vinci robotic surgical system minimally-invasive procedure. Laboratory mechanization is used in research workshops for routine jobs such as microplate handing.
These electrifying robotic improvements and collaborations promise for the future to be more resourceful and productive. Someday they can even do the daily routine tasks that people fear. After all, the iRobot Roomba is already keeping carpets clean without all the manual labor.
