Impressive technology. It's amazing how complex the assembly is and also how it integrates eight pneumatic actuators plus sensing technology. Would be interested to know how this technology is being deployed.
Ann, this sounds like the begining of an Iron Man. Actually it is very cool. I was also struck by the number of research projects you mention at the end of the article that are based on the gripping approach of natural systems. This is an interesting field of research, as is haptics itself.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
