In last week’s edition of Connect the Dots, we discussed some highlights from Sensors Expo, where flexible and stretchable sensors were heralded as the future, and new advances in chemical sensors were shown to solve today’s need for quick and accurate air-quality monitoring. Oddly, given the recent events in Flint, MI, simple and quick water-quality sensor solutions weren’t presented. There’s an idea, but competition is already underway in that area.

Heroes: What They Do & Why We Need Them By Scott T. Allison and George R. Goethals People often ask us why we need heroes. Inflatable Robots by Otherlab: A Walking Robot (named Ant-Roach) and a Complete Arm (Plus Hand) A Pneubot Named "Ant-Roach" : The Inflatable Anteater-Cockroach Robot To quote Otherlab's recent blog post: Here is the Otherlab’s 15 foot inflatable walking robot, the Ant-Roach.
