Thought the blog was stopped? Wrong! Summer holidays are over and we are back with refilled batteries and exicitng news on robotics, materials and science. Today we want to talk about the World Robot Conference 2017, which took place in Beijing during the last five days.
Some of the most remarcable findings were for instance: Teotronico, a 53-finger pianist who plays the piano and sings at the same time; Alpha, a voice-controlled butler who can turn the lights on, switch on the TV, the air conditioner, even dance and read books; or Bestic, who can carefully feed people with reduced mobility with a spoon.
As you can see, robotics not only have space in big automotive factories, increasingly other sectors such as domestic, sanitary and entertainment are exploring the advantages of robotics. Robots can transform society as we know it nowadays, making life easier for people with disabilities, chronic illnesses, hospital patients, elders and children.

Como ya sabéis ATRIA Innovation copatrocina este año el Comité de Innovación de la Asociación de Jóvenes Empresarios de Zaragoza (
AJE Zaragoza) junto con GRB Mixers. Uno de los eventos organizados por el Comité son las Sesiones de Innovación 1001. Nuestra compañera Esther nos cuenta cómo fue la sesión.
We have already started the first tests in industrial environments with the Hololens for applications to read data screens in real time, visualize quality indexes, data sheets, etc.
Automated guided vehicles that transport vehicles, robots that provide logistic support, bionic robots that assemble all kinds of components, collaborative robots, Google glasses, augmented reality and 3D printers for complex shapes and lighter materials. This is the new Audi Factory in Ingolstadt. It is the “factory of the future”.
Laser marking is sometimes called “laser screen printing”, “laser printing” or even “laser pad printing”, but the truth is laser technology has nothing to do with these traditional technics. Some of you have asked us about the advantages of laser over others, as pad printing or screen printing, and we want to share with all of you in this post the answer to this question.
Some of you will remember self-assembly and programmable materials from an older post, well, today we want to show you the ultimate broadcast news presented by MIT CSAIL (Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory) researchers: “Programmable Viscoelastic Material” (PVM). This material allows 3D-printed objects with programmable hardness and elasticity, furthermore, users will be the ones who programme their own inventions according to their needs. You will only need a 3D-printer to build your object with a similar process based in additive manufacturing, that consists on depositing droplets of different materials (different mechanical properties) in a multilayer structure until the design is completed.
Some months ago we introduced in the blog Mushroom® Packaging, a sustainable alternative to polystyrene, manufactured with agricultural waste and mushroom. Today we bring: agar packaging. Wrapping paper, bubble wrap,… Agar wants to banish these traditional paper and plastic packaging. Future is algae!
