Yes, Rob, it can't be denied...making things simple through more sophisticated and intelligent automation is definitely the trend in manufacturing, and it's a good one. More and more products are headed in this direction.

I agree. I clicked on the video demonstration. No programming required. You just show the motor what you want it to do with kinesthetic controls. I was amazed.

It's good to see that more suppliers are taking on this problem of the need for complex programming and speciality equipment. Maybe this could help customers solve their own implementation problems, without the need for calling in outside system integrators.

Here's another example of smart technology that is offering greater automation sophistication while proving the operator with ease of use. That trend seems to be everywhere in automation these days.

New software from Carnegie Mellon allows 2D objects -- digital photos, old photos, and even paintings -- to be manipulated in 3D using models found online.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
