This movie is terrible. And bad. by Erik Henriksen F our years before The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro made Pacific Rim, a movie about giant robots punching giant monsters—and a movie that, thanks to Del Toro, had an inventive,...Show More Summary
A soft robot moves its tail to swim like a fish, which will help scientists get closer to unsuspecting marine creatures while studying them.
It looks like a fish. It swims like a fish. But it isn’t a fish. It’s SoFi, the robotic fish. Developed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, SoFi is a soft-bodied robot that glides silently through the water with a smooth, undulating motion designed to mimic the...
Another day, another step toward the robot revolution. Harvest CROO Robotics recently demonstrated an automated strawberry-picking machine, hell bent on replacing people in the fields. As described by NPR reporter Dan Charles, the […] The post Strawberry-Picking Robots Will Definitely Take Your Job appeared first on Geek.com.
This soft robotic fish is reef friendly and won't scare away the real thing

Scientists have developed a soft robot that looks so much like a real fish that it can swim unobtrusively alongside marine life while capturing still-and video images.
John Boyega stars as a former washout who gets back in the fray and pilots a gigantic mechanical Jaeger against beasts from another dimension in the sequel "Pacific Rim Uprising."
We've seen the redesign of Mega Man for the upcoming animated series, but now we have some official artwork showing off a selection of Robot Masters. Fire Man, Ice Man and Drill Man are all in action, as are two others that might be completely new for the show. Last we heard, Mega Man was set to air on Cartoon Network later this year.
We were warned, time and time again, by one expert after another. AI doesn’t play fair, it can’t make moral decisions, and it relies entirely on humans for ethics. When those humans are (allegedly) Alex Nix, Steve Bannon, and Dr. Aleksandr Kogan we’re all in a lot of trouble. Show More Summary
Robots disguised as animals have come to provide us with unprecedented insights into the natural world, as BBC's incredible wildlife documentaries continue to demonstrate. Now scientists at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence...Show More Summary
"SoFi" is a soft robotic fish with a fish-eye lens (of course) that can explore where few other robots or humans can, and without spooking the locals.
Researchers at MIT today revealed their fishiest project yet: a swimming robot. SoFi is an autonomous underwater vehicle that looks like a fish, swims like a fish, and even has a fisheye lens for its built-in camera. It’s here to uncover the ocean’s mysteries by pretending to be just another Nemo or Dory in the sea. Show More Summary
Researchers detail the evolution of the world’s strangest fish, and describe how it could be a potentially powerful tool for scientists to study ocean life.
