From the home to the workplace, and to the sky above, robots in 2022 are transforming the world we know —and helping us understand the worlds we don’t. Let’s highlight a few of these remarkable machines and how they might transform not only how we interact with ourselves, but also the universe around us. We will take about the following robots: Mars Perseverance & Ingenuity, Moley the Robotic Chef, Toyota’s Robotic Butler, Spot by Boston Dynamics, Digit by Agility Robotics, Atlas by Boston Dynamics, Guardian XO Exoskeleton, Vicarious Medical Robot, British loyal wingman and Xenobots!

China develops world’s largest quadruped bionic robot with off-road capabilities

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, military, robotics/AI, transhumanism

China has developed the world’s largest electrically-powered quadruped bionic robot to assist the military on logistics and reconnaissance missions. This comes as the latest in China’s push to become a global leader in robotics by 2025 and also, of course, in military tech.

Walking on four legs and boasting a yak-like appearance, the robot is not only huge but powerful, smart, and surprisingly agile. It can move forward and backward and can perform a series of unexpected movements, such as jumping, running, turning, or walking diagonally.

This mechanical beast is strong enough to carry up to 350 pounds (160 kg) and can sprint at 6 mph (10 km/h). The robot is more than half the height of an adult when walking, and its length is about twice its height. Thanks to an unconscionable 12 sets of joint modules, it even sprints and dashes and jumps high without losing its footing.

The Cyborg Revolution: Are They Here Yet?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, robotics/AI

They are.

The cyborgs are upon us. Turns out, they’re more ‘enhanced reality’ and less ‘science fiction.’

In 1998, Professor of Cybernetics Kevin Warwick had a chip implanted in his body that would open electronic doors and turn on lights as he passed. In 2002, he had a 100 electrode array wired into the nervous system of his arm to allow him to remotely control an artificial hand. Today, he’s working on using animal brain cells as a control system for robots.

China’s New Electric Quadruped Robot Could Be the Largest in the World

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, military, robotics/AI, transhumanism

And it looks like a big yak.

China’s state media, the Global Times, claims the country has developed the world’s largest electric-powered quadruped bionic robot. And to be honest, that thing looks just like a yak.

Bizarre appearances aside, this comes as the latest in China’s push to become a global leader in robotics by 2025. And also, of course, in military tech.… See more.

World’s First 3D-Printed Prosthetic Eye

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, cyborgs

TALLAHASSEE, Florida — A London patient, Steve Verze, became the first to use a 3D-printed prosthetic eye in November 2021. Its advancements in aesthetics, durability and production process allude to an auspicious future for prosthetics. Yet, developing countries struggle regarding prosthetic accessibility and affordability. Losing a limb or organ in poverty is extremely impactful since access to prosthetic devices or assistance is rare.

A 3D Difference

Steve Verze made history by replacing his acrylic eye with a 3D-printed prosthetic. Since he was 20 years old, he has worn a prosthetic and expressed that he was always self-conscious wearing it. The difference between his previous eye and the 3D counterpart is wider than expected. Traditional prosthetic eyes take six weeks to finish due to hand painting acrylic. The 3D printing prosthetic takes two to three weeks in comparison. Acrylic eyes require an anesthetic for children due to the challenge of molding them to the eye socket. The 3D eye only uses digital scans and “is a true biomimetic and a more realistic prosthetic, with clearer definition and a real depth to the pupil.” The world’s first 3D-printed prosthetic eye shows advancements that expand the possibilities of prosthetics forever.

Cyborgs in the streets

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, cyborgs, robotics/AI

I don’t know how about you… But I’m meeting cyborgs in the streets regularly. If you observe carefully you can find people with artificial legs and arms. So next time watch more carefully. Its most common seen artificial body part. On other hand there are other parts you can’t see, like artificial joints, dental implants, breast implants, pacemakers, insulin pumps and so on. We are unable to see them but they are very common. Millions people use them. Nowadays very common trend is biohacking where people implant magnets and chips to their bodies. We think our bodies are born complete but we are wrong. We can upgrade and modify them. What if we can use brain implants to be smarter, to think and focus sharper.

First real cyborg I have met was Prof. Kevin Warwick. We met in Pilsen at conference about artificial intelligence. He is known for his studies on direct interfaces between computer systems and the human nervous system, and has also done research concerning robotics.

Bionic Eyes: Developing the Next Generation of Artificial Vision AIDS

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, robotics/AI, transhumanism

A new technology solution that will provide low-power systems for use in bionic eyes, has been jointly developed by academics from the Harbin Institute of Technology in China and Northumbria University.

Working in partnership with a research group led by Professor PingAn Hu from the Harbin Institute, Northumbria’s Professor Richard Fu described their newly developed method for controlling the artificial synaptic devices used in bionic retinas, robots, and visual prostheses, as a “significant breakthrough.”

The team discovered that injecting elements of the soft metal, indium, into a two-dimensional (2D) material called molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), could improve electrical conductivity and reduce power consumption of the optical synapses used in the development of bionic eyes.

Quadriplegic man, using two robot arms, can feed himself again

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, food, robotics/AI

Using a brain computer interface, the man cut and ate food with thought-controlled robotic hands. A man paralyzed from the neck down has used two robot arms to cut food and serve himself — a big step in the field of mind-controlled prosthetics.

Robert “Buz” Chmielewski, age 49, has barely been able to move his arms since a surfing accident paralyzed him as a teenager. But in January of 2019, he got renewed hope, when doctors implanted two sets of electrodes in his brain, one in each hemisphere.

The goal was that this brain computer interface would help Chmielewski regain some sensation in his hands, enable him to mentally control two prosthetic arms, and even feel what he is touching. man paralyzed from the neck down has used two robot arms to cut food and serve himself — a big step in the field of mind-controlled prosthetics.

Elastomer-powered bug-bots could pave way for futuristic applications

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, food, robotics/AI

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have reported a potentially significant advance with the development of microdrones, equipped with wings powered by artificial muscles in the form of elastomer-based actuators.

The development, claims MIT, could pave the way for futuristic applications, for example, swarms of the insect-sized robots that pollinate fields of crops or search for survivors buried in collapsed buildings.
