Wonder Workshop

Wonder Workshop is an educational technology company that was founded in 2012 with the goal of creating innovative products that help children learn programming, engineering, and problem-solving skills through hands-on play and experimentation. The company is based in San Mateo, California, and has a team of engineers, designers, and educators who work together to develop its products.

An experimental drone flight was conducted to transport a transplant lung to a patient in Toronto, demonstrating the concept’s practicality.

A group of investigators from the Toronto General Hospital Research Institute, Unither Bioelectronics Inc., and Techna, University Health Network, have proven the practicality of utilizing drones to convey human organs for transplantation to nearby spots. In a Focus article in the Science Robotics journal, the scientists explain the components that contributed to this milestone, and what it might suggest...

Examining the Physical Intelligence of Groups: An Exploration of How Ants and Robots Complete a Prison Break without an Established Layout or Leader

Single ants are simple organisms and yet, when living together in a colony, they can do amazingly complex activities including building, finding food and defending themselves.

Verbal expressions demonstrate their effectiveness as instructional aides for automated machines.

Princeton researchers have conducted research with the goal of exploring a more efficient means of teaching robots. They discovered that providing robots with human language explanations of tools assists the simulated robotic arm in quickly learning how to lift and operate a wide range of tools.

Scientists created a mechanical creature that has the ability to alight like a fowl.

EPFL scientists have formulated an approach that permits a robotic bird to touch down robotically on a flat perch using a claw-like apparatus. This advancement could essentially broaden the scope of work that robots can carry out.

A system to allow spacecraft to travel independently during long-distance space voyages.

SLAM has so far mostly been used to improve navigation for land-based vehicles and bots, however it has the potential to be implemented for space travel too. This technology enables autonomous systems to make an internal map of its locality and monitor other items in the area.

Should we impose levies on robots?

The idea of taxing robots has been proposed by academics, policy experts and Bill Gates who is supportive of the concept. This tax could work by combating the payroll tax decrease when robots are used by creating a motive to keep employing workers. South Korea has taken action by reducing robotic incentives while the European Union examined the possibility...

SeaClear – robotic project of underwater trash cleaning

Removing debris from the ocean or sea is a costly and time-consuming process. In a European project, a team at the Technische Universität München (TUM) is developing a robotic system that uses machine learning technology to detect and collect underwater debris.The oceans and oceans currently contain 26-66 million tonnes of plastic waste, most of which is on...

Japan is planning to send a scout-robot designed by a toy designer to the moon

The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency has planned to send a special reconnaissance system to the Moon in 2022. It will consist of a landing module to practice safe landing techniques and a reconnaissance robot to study the terrain. The latter is made according to an unusual scheme transformer - to fly to the moon it will be...
