Tiny vibration-powered robots could repair your body from the inside

There are many challenges to developing robots that could operate within your body, not the least of which is finding a power source — you can’t exactly strap a big battery on them. That might not be an issue thanks to Georgia Tech researchers. Th…


Synthetic fiber ‘muscles’ could lead to brawny robots and prosthetics

Most attempts at giving robots muscles tend to be heavy, slow or both. Scientists might finally have a solution that’s both light and nimble, though. They’ve developed fibers that can serve as artificial muscles for robots while remaining light, re…


NASA backs demo that will 3D-print spacecraft parts in orbit

NASA is expanding its efforts to bring 3D printing to space. The agency has given Made In Space a $73.3 million contract to demonstrate the ability to 3D-print spacecraft parts in orbit using Archinaut One (shown above), a robotic manufacturi…
