Modular Robotic Hand Moving Like A Live One (+VIDEO)

Future Robots. Robotic Snakes & Worms Get Under Your Skin. The modular snake robots being designed at Carnegie Mellon University can move in a variety of ways: slither, roll, swim, and climb straight up. They can spiral forward to fit through a narrow space such as a pipe, or they can wind themselves around a pole or tree and slither up. To move across a flat surface, they move up and down like an inchworm.

So far, Dr Laschi’s robot is not so much an octopus as a monopus, but she plans to correct this over the next two years by adding seven more arms and a control system that can co-ordinate them all.

Exsoskeleton armor gives superhuman strength to regular people and paralyzed people the ability walk.

FDA Approves Segway Inventor's Mind-Controlled Robotic Arm

A Bionic, Mind-Controlled Arm, From the Inventor of the Segway Enter the DEKA limb, the first FDA-approved robotic arm that’s powered by the wearer’s mind. Electrodes attached to the arm near the prosthesis detect muscle contraction, and those signals are then interpreted into specific movements by a computer, the FDA announced on Friday.
