Unique sweater-like fabric may help robots to feel human touch

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University has developed a machine-knitted textile “skin” that can detect contact and pressure.

Over recent years, the goal in robotics has been to make robots more humane.

To make this possible, engineers have now developed a first-of-its-kind “RobotSweater” that will enable better interaction with humans. The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University has developed a machine-knitted textile “skin” that can be wrapped around the robot’s body to detect contact and pressure.

Researchers discover Chinmo, ‘the youth gene’

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, evolution

A new study published on eLife and led by the Institute for Evolutionary Biology (IBE, CSIC-UPF) and the IRB Barcelona, has revealed that the Chinmo gene is responsible for establishing the juvenile stage in insects. It also confirms that the Br-C and E93 genes play a regulatory role in insect maturity. These genes, which are also present in humans, act as a promoter and as a suppressor, respectively, of cancerous processes.

The results of the research, which was carried out with the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and the cockroach Blatella germanica, reveal that these genes have been conserved throughout the evolution of insects. Therefore, it is believed that they could play a key role in the evolution of .

Insects that undergo complete metamorphosis, such as flies, go through the following three stages of development: the embryo, which is formed inside the egg; the larva (juvenile stage), which grows in several phases; and the pupa, which is the stage that encompasses metamorphosis and the formation of the adult organism.
