Artificial Skin

Researchers from Bristol and Paris have developed a device that takes touch technology to another level. Their device helps augment devices like phone, computer and wearables. The researchers from University of Bristol along with Telecomm Paris Tech and Sorbonne University developed the device. Further, they say that the device not only mimics the human skin color but also the resolution of sensing. Technique Behind Developing the Device The idea of

Smart Speakers

The use of smart speakers like Google Home and Amazon Echo as music players is limited. These smart speakers are quickly gaining popularity in its new role as health tracker. Wherein it helps people monitor their vital signs. Researchers at the University of Washington have come up with a newly developed skill for smart speakers that could make this device utilize white noise to monitor movements and breathing of infants.

Wildfires

People living or working in regions prone to wildfire are always under the worry of death. This prompted a few of such people to approach Professor Fumiashi Takahashi to find out if there was a commercial product that protects structures from wildfires. Takahashi, a professor at the Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, has a solution. Though, there are no commercial products in the market. Technology is Key Professor Takahashi

Robots

A research team from Technical University of Munich has put on human-like skins on robots to bring the future a step closer. This synthetic skin enabled robots to sense temperature, movement, and get in touch with their surroundings. This innovation may seem trivial to some, especially amidst the hype and buzz that surrounds robotics. However, the skin is a real gateway for robots understand and interact with humans. Without this

robots

Robots and AI is the new buzzword globally. Researchers have taken another leap in bringing the robotic future a step closer to us. In a new research, robots learned the ability to recognize human emotions. This new research relied on a major observation or hypothesis of human behavior. According to the observation, human being are capable of recognizing emotions like sadness, excitement, and aggression based on movements. This is a
