Autonomous walking robot (AMOS-WD06) under neural control

The AMOS-WD06 (Advanced Mobility Sensor Driven-Walking Device) is the reactive 6-legged walking machine which mimics the structures of walking animals. This walking machine driven by modular neural control can autonomously perform reactive behaviors, eg wandering around, avoiding obstacles, escaping from deadlock situations or corners, reflex action (standing in an upside-down position) and escape behavior (run

Third-person shooter improves science skills

Want an excuse to play a third-person shooter video game? Fear not, my intrepid adventurers–so long as you are willing to navigate the microscopic world of immune system proteins and cells to save a patient trying to fight off a raging bacterial infection.

Direct Brain Control of a Humanoid Robot

University of Washington Researchers have developed a non-invasive brain-computer interface (BCI) that allows a user to command a humanoid robot to pick up objects and bring it to specific locations. A humanoid robot can use sophisticated robotics and computer vision techniques to explore the environment, discover possible objects and interactions, and interact with the objects
