Controlling Robots With Our Minds And Other Methods
2013-05-03 19:20:14

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The future of robotics may not be as scary as one would think, especially if we are able to control robots with our minds like one scientist is trying to do. Researcher Angel Perez Garcia says he is able to make a robot move exactly how he wants using his thoughts. For the experiment, he says he hooks up an EEG to himself to monitor electrical activity, then focuses on a symbol, such as a flashing light. The electrodes read the...

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A group of engineers at the University of Arizona worked to develop a set of robotic legs that most closely mimic the gait of humans. Researchers studied, then replicated a simple nervous system that controls the hips and directs the legs to take steps on its own. The intended use for a robot that walks ranges from commercial to personal. "It is clear that in the future robots will be used in homes to do household chores, assist the...

Killer robots may pose a threat to humans sometime in the all-too-near future. Noel Sharkey, a professor at the University of Sheffield, presented this information to Britain's Royal United Services Institute on Wednesday. Sharkey, who was once a judge on television's Robot Wars as well as an expert for the BBC's TechnoGames, knows a great deal about robotics. His concerns might quickly lead to the disquieting of our country. According to Sharkey, we are currently in the first phase of what...

It's not too hard to imagine sex with robots being almost commonplace in hundreds or thousands of years' time. In the distant future, when a partner is too exhausted to make love, or just doesn't feel like it, a futuristic sex robot that will do the trick seems almost feasible. But it could happen sooner, according to David Levy, the author of "Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relations". Levy, who has a PhD in gender studies and artificial intelligence, predicts that by the...

Word of the Day
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.'
