Cyborg cockroach may save your life one day!

Cyborg cockroach may save your life one day!
A cockroach no bigger than a large paper clip scurries across the floor of Abhishek Dutta’s lab at the University of Connecticut. Some scientists might be shocked to see such a notorious visitor occupying their research space. But not Dutta. He watches intently as the roach moves left, and then right, then left again, as it traverses the cool tile floor. His interest is well-founded, for he is the one initiating the tiny creature’s movements with a small handheld device about 15ft away.

UAVs and UGVs: not just pie in the sky

UAVs and UGVs: not just pie in the sky
Though consumer-level drones have received a lot of bad press in recent times - near misses with aircraft, incidents where members of the public have been injured and flying contraband into prisons - within the defence sector, the high end versions of this technology has the potential to save lives.  By Giorgio Potenza, Strategic Market Manager for High-Rel Systems, Harwin.

Opportunity battens down the hatches to try and weather a super storm

Opportunity battens down the hatches to try and weather a super storm
NASA is keeping a vigil over its Opportunity rover as the tenacious robot has been forced to shut down its systems and enter sleep mode as a massive storm has encompassed her; the storm even bigger than the ones expected to decommission the rover over 14 years ago.

Fly like an albatross, cruise like a sailboat

Fly like an albatross, cruise like a sailboat
MIT engineers have designed a robotic glider that can skim along the water’s surface, riding the wind like an albatross while also surfing the waves like a sailboat. In regions of high wind, the robot is designed to stay aloft, much like its avian counterpart. Where there are calmer winds, the robot can dip a keel into the water to ride like a highly efficient sailboat instead.
