Robot Learns To Flip Pancake (fail)

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.

Real life prosthetic hand inspired by video game

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!

'Phantom Pain' prosthetic hand from 3D printer

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.

Avatar robot staves off sick children's isolation

Norwegian researchers have developed a novel way to keep children recovering from long-term illness connected to their friends and their education from their sickbed. An avatar robot is placed at the child's desk and controlled by the pupil from their home via cameras, microphones, and speakers, allowing them to contribute to lessons and avoid the crippling social isolation caused by long-term absence.
