Today we say goodbye to Justin the intern, who's name we just started remembering last week. We'll give him an exit interview on the show and find out what he really thinks about his boss. We're also talking about Netflix's comedy moves, kilobot attacks, and the obvious demographic of AOL subscribers.
An autonomous team of swarming robots is the first of its kind on such a scale.
Harvard University designs a system to manage hundreds of miniature, communicating Kilobots at once, letting researchers and hobbyists test ways that the minibots can move and work collectively.
After three years of testing, Harvard University showed off a swarm of 1024 Kilobots that can self-assemble into various shapes this week. They're still small, but maybe someday, the technology can be used for mightier things (that hopefully don't involve destroying humanity).
On today's show, we're talking about the new augmented reality social app Traces, Harvard's self-assembling Kilobots, and a setup that lets you drive a real car like a third-person game.
Simple robots that identify and move toward each other could open the way to armies of machines that measure pollution, pollinate plants, or fly through our bodies.
The robotics research team at UPenn teaches a swarm of small quadcopter robots to do agile flight and fly in formation, a step toward programming small, inexpensive robots en masse.
iRobot invests $6 million in InTouch Health to test its robots, including Ava, for use in telemedicine and assisted care at healthcare facilities.
Harvard University's robotics lab designs an origami-inspired method for stamping out large numbers of pop-up flying microrobots.
