The robots are programmable and their materials will be also thanks to MIT

A new development in robotics not only allow robots are programmable to assign all kinds of tasks: the material they own are made can also be programmed to suit all conditions and environments.

A group of researchers from MIT CSAIL (Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory ) has developed the so – called “Programmable Viscoelastic Material ” (PVM), a type of material used in 3D printers and achieves “robots safer, robust and accurate in their movements”. Continue Reading
