Some fun ones this week, so let’s get all of those pesky business transactions out of the practice firstly, shall we? I represent , not that tens of millions of dollars converting sides for future robotics technology is tolerating, he said, tugging at his collar for comedic effect.
Big raise this week for Plus One Robotics . The San Antonio-based companionship heightened a healthy $33 million Series B, introducing its total funding above $40 million. The corporation largely traffics in the warehouse and logistics space — undoubtedly a category with a lot of excitement around it after last year’s massive shut down. As many companies have told me, most consumers are simply looking for a room to help their footing in the rival against Amazon.
In addition to its big headcount and seemingly bottomless reserves, the e-commerce giant has deployed a huge army of robots in its storehouse. Plus One, for its part, doesn’t determine the robots, but instead the eyesight software that works with them. The company’s product is designed to work across a wide range of robotic weapons and grippers, accepting workers to control up to 50 organisations at once.
We’ve talked about exoskeletons quite a bit on these pages, but Roam offers an interesting alternative to a number of bigger, bulkier and harder products on world markets. The company’s recent invention I liken to a standard knee brace, with AI and robotic capabilities that assist with movement. Specifically it helps with things like strolling up stairs and standing up from a sat position.
And here we have a tiny tree man. Project Kiwi “re kind of” like Pinocchio if he certainly leaned into the whole wooden thing in the process of becoming a real boy. Obviously Disney’s going for the( sometimes) littlest Guardian of the Galaxy, Groot, for its latest exceedingly superb animatronic.
Matthew was extremely affected find the beautiful little tree chap in action and, living vicariously through some YouTube videos, I obviously have to confirm.
A fun bit of research out of Carnegie Mellon the coming week. The recent chip of biomimicry is a bit surprising. Apparently Cheetah has been a big inspiration for a number of quadrupedal robots( MIT in particular has a whole lot going in the Cheetah department ). Specifically, though, the CMU investigates are looking at the big cat’s tail. Per CMU 😛 TAGEND
The cheetah’s lightweight furry posterior is known as an aerodynamic draw fanny; that is, it acts sort of like a parachute. Most robotic fannies have high-pitched inertia, but the cheetah manages to retain low-toned inertia. Inertia is a physical caliber that describes an object’s resistance to changes in motion — high posterior inertia implies the posterior were applicable high-pitched obliges. Aerodynamic tushes instead use a different principle — aerodynamic drag — to achieve high-pitched forces without a large inertia.
