World Conference on Robots 2017 Beijing

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.

Factories of the future: modular assemblying by Audi

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 vs pad printing

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.

Programmable protections for robots

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.
