World's Top3 Humanoid Robots - Asimo vs HPR-4 vs NAO!

World's Top3 Humanoid Robots - Asimo vs HPR-4 vs NAO!

7 new smartphone features that will help define your future Biosensors will soon be integrated into clothing, shoes and accessories such as Sensoria smart socks, prescription Google Glass and smart workout gear from Athos, which is due this summer and is pictured above. Athos clothing analyzes how your body is performing, meaning you can track your fitness in real-time. Sensoria Fitness Socks have sensors to track activity and fitness goals. The sensors gather data on heart rate, force and pressure. Some Android phones can use eye-scanning security via the Eyeprint App Lock from EyeVerify, a demo of which is pictured. Keyless home deadbolt locks are expected to come into the mainstream in the future. Apple broadened the acceptance of fingerprint scanning with the iPhone 5S' Touch ID sensor. Google Glass may seem like a novelty right now but the wearable gadget could soon be saving some companies millions of dollars per year. Tech that will change your life No more keys: Bluetooth 4.0 Stewart Wolpin No more tickets or cash: NFC, iBeacon

Robots at Work and Play - In Focus Advancements in robotics are continually taking place in the fields of space exploration, health care, public safety, entertainment, defense, and more. These machines -- some fully autonomous, some requiring human input -- extend our grasp, enhance our capabilities, and travel as our surrogates to places too dangerous or difficult for us to go. Gathered here are recent images of robotic technology at the beginning of the 21st century, including robotic insurgents, NASA's Juno spacecraft on its way to Jupiter, and a machine inside an archaeological dig in Mexico.

Technologies des robots humanoïdes Il existe pour les robots humanoïdes deux grandes classes d'applications. La première vise à construire des systèmes polyvalents et performants capables d'agir dans des environnements humains. Éventuellement, ces robots agiront comme des collaborateurs robotiques, aussi appelés « cobots ». La deuxième classe vise à valider des concepts de recherche sur des modèles biologiques et/ou cognitifs. La division entre ces deux classes n'est pas toujours aisée, l'une profitant généralement des avancées scientifiques ou techniques réalisées dans l'autre. suite à diverses avancées techniques. 7 new smartphone features that will help define your future Biosensors will soon be integrated into clothing, shoes and accessories such as Sensoria smart socks, prescription Google Glass and smart workout gear from Athos, which is due this summer and is pictured above.

Mobile World Congress begins in Barcelona Monday and amid the hoopla of new super-phones, largely unknown technologies will be revealed. And it will be these that change our lives. Here are seven I predict will help define our future. No more keys: Bluetooth 4.0 Bluetooth 4.0 (recently updated to 4.1), also known as Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) and Bluetooth Smart, already enables an ever-widening variety of wearable gadgets such as wrist-worn health/fitness monitors and smart watches. Away from home, several hotels have begun testing keyless Bluetooth 4.0 room entry. No more tickets or cash: NFC, iBeacon Constant health and fitness monitoring: Wearable biosensors

Les robots humanoïdes Il y a les androïdes, des robots spécialisés pour remplacer l'homme dans une tâche précise et répétitive, les robots jouets que l'on peut programmer, et les robots expérimentaux pour remplacer l'homme dans des environnement dangereux ou inaccessibles. Ils prennent la forme humanoïdes pour être plus proches de nous. La plupart sont ou seront commercialisés et feront bientôt partie du paysage.

Elle pourrait avoir une apparence plus humaine, mais cela a été volontairement évité car certaines personnes sont gênées en présence d'humains mécanique.

Initiative Founded by Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov in February 2011 with the participation of leading Russian specialists in the field of neural interfaces, robotics, artificial organs and systems. The main goals of the 2045 Initiative: the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimale conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high technologies. The main science mega-project of the 2045 Initiative aims to create technologies enabling the transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality. We devote particular attention to enabling the fullest possible dialogue between the world’s major spiritual traditions, science and society.

Des robots humanoïdes dans les usines aéronautiques de demain Développer des technologies de robotique humanoïde pour effectuer des tâches difficiles dans les usines aéronautiques, c'est le programme de recherche commun, d'une durée de quatre ans, du Joint Robotics Laboratory et d'Airbus Group. L’introduction d’humanoïdes sur les lignes d’assemblage aéronautiques permettra de décharger les opérateurs humains des tâches les plus laborieuses ou dangereuses. Ils pourront ainsi se concentrer sur des tâches à plus forte valeur ajoutée. La principale difficulté pour ces robots sera de travailler dans un environnement exigu : comment réaliser certains mouvements sans entrer en collision avec les nombreux objets alentours ? C’est la première question à laquelle devront répondre les chercheurs, en développant de nouveaux algorithmes de planification et contrôle des mouvements précis. Source : cnrs

Human Exoskeleton, The ‘Body Extender,’ Is ‘Most Complex Wearable Robot’ Ever Built Engineers in Italy have created what is known as the “Body Extender,” a type of machine that humans can be strapped into like something out of Star Wars. At the Perceptual Robotics Laboratory, also known as Percro, engineers have created a robot that can carry humans, protect them, and move heavy objects as a form of exoskeleton, or skeleton outside of the body. “This is the most complex wearable robot that has been ever built in the world,” Fabio Salsedo of Percro told the BBC. “It’s a device which is able to track the complex movement of the human body and also to amplify the force of the operator.” The machine can lift about 50 kilograms (110 lbs.) in each of its hands, and can exert 10 times the force that the person inside applies. This gives humans super strength: a chance to pick up really heavy objects and throw them much farther than our natural bodies could. For humans, the engineers see plenty of options in which robotic exoskeletons could be beneficial. Dr.

Atlas : Le robot humanoïde souffre-douleur de Google > > Atlas : Le robot humanoïde souffre-douleur de Google Les équipes de Boston Dynamics, société spécialisée dans la robotique et propriété du géant américain Google depuis 2013, ont l’habitude de nous épater grâce aux vidéos de leurs créations régulièrement postées sur la toile. Si les premiers robots de la firme ressemblaient plutôt à des animaux, Boston Dynamics entend bien révolutionner le domaine avec Atlas, un humanoïde aux capacités époustouflantes. Atlas, le robot humanoïde nouvelle génération Les fans de robotique connaissaient déjà le robot Atlas dans sa première itération et remarqueront tout de suite les changements apportés sur cette nouvelle version. Au début de la vidéo postée par Boston Dynamics, on peut voir Atlas se déplacer tranquillement en ouvrant une porte pour rejoindre l’extérieur et un sol enneigé qui ne le perturbe pas outre mesure et qui font la démonstration du sens de l’équilibre du robot. Une adaptabilité jamais vue pour un robot

“Evolution 2045” - A Political Party for Cybernetic Immortality and Avatar Technologies New York, NY (PRWEB) August 27, 2012 The political party “Evolution 2045” was created and registered in Russia with the goal of promoting and accelerating human evolution through Avatar technologies. The organization behind the party – “2045 Initiative” – is a Russia-based group of scientists creating a global network of experts looking to develop technologies of cybernetic immortality to overcome global crises and inspire humanity to reach a new level of spiritual evolution. “We aim to reach a new stage of development for human civilization, which will be linked with the fundamental expansion of the creative abilities of the human being, and extend human life to the point of immortality,” said Dmitry Itskov, Founder of the 2045 Initiative and chairman of the “Evolution 2045” party. Party members call themselves internationalists, and anticipate that other countries will form their own “Evolution 2045” parties, with an identical ideology.
