Introducing Handle Handle is a research robot that stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4 feet vertically. It uses electric power to operate both electric and hydraulic actuators, with a range of about 15 miles on one battery charge. Handle uses many of the same dynamics, balance and mobile manipulation principles found in the quadruped and biped robots we build, but with only about 10 actuated joints, it is significantly less complex. Wheels are efficient on flat surfaces while legs can go almost anywhere: by combining wheels and legs Handle can have the best of both worlds.

This homemade machine built with Lego Mindstorms, Raspberry Pi, and BrickPi, uses the Kociemba two-phase algorithm to completely solve a Rubik's cube all on its own. Unreal!
We often think of metal as an extremely strong and durable material, which is why it's so satisfying to watch this milling machine carve it up like it's no big deal.
Astronauts heading into orbit aboard Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft will wear lighter and more comfortable spacesuits than earlier versions. The suit capitalizes on historical designs, meets NASA requirements for safety and functionality, while introducing cutting-edge innovations. Boeing unveiled its spacesuit design Wednesday as the company continues to move toward flight tests of its Starliner spacecraft and launch systems that will fly astronauts to the International Space Station.
Sucking polluted air out of car parks can lead to significant reductions in the presence of deadly fine particles in the atmosphere, says a Dutch company. It has joined forces with university researchers to simulate how mobile air purification units could help car parks and municipal buildings act as "lungs of the city". Jim Drury reports.

Instead of making robots that can do certain tasks, it’s better to make a robot capable of learning new skills. Here a man teaches a one armed robot to flip a pancake. It takes some time, but soon our little metal friend learns pretty well.
Several months ago Armatus Designs received a commission to create a functional prosthetic hand based off of the Phantom Pain hand used in Metal Gear Solid 5. This was for a client who was born without a left hand and grew tired of his standard claw style prosthetic, but didn't want to shell out thousands of dollars for a motorized medical grade prosthetic. The goal was to create something durable, functional and useful on a budget. This is the result!
It's almost impossible to beat this robot in the pinball. In Saney, he takes 300 pictures and follows the ball. Faster and stronger than a human ...
The multi-screens which become indispensable for those who like to play games on the desktop computers now appear to be confronted with lap-tops. Razer has unveiled Project Valerie, which is still in concept phase at CES 2017.
Several months ago Armatus Designs received a commission to create a functional prosthetic hand based off of the Phantom Pain hand used in Metal Gear Solid 5. This was for a client who was born without a left hand and grew tired of his standard claw style prosthetic, but didn't want to shell out thousands of dollars for a motorized medical grade prosthetic. The goal was to create something durable, functional and useful on a budget. The client has very little left of his wrist, meaning the standard active grip system on other 3D printed prosthetics wouldn't work for him, so they designed a passive grip system using retention springs. This allows the fingers to auto-adjust to whatever object they are gripping, and only requires user input to actually open the grip, which is done by pulling the knob at the rear of the forearm section. All 5 fingers normally open and close at once, but there is also a detachable ring connected to the main knob which articulates just the index finger, which can be locked in place to allow greater usability in actions such as typing and pressing buttons.
