Growing bio-inspired shapes with hundreds of tiny robots
Growing bio-inspired shapes with hundreds of tiny robots
Hundreds of small robots can work in a team to create biology-inspired shapes - without an underlying master plan, purely based on local communication and movement. This is what researchers from Barcelona working with the Bristol Robotics Laboratory found when they introduced the biological principles of self-organisation to swarm robotics.

Sound waves levitate multiple objects - future technology for contactless medical procedures
Sound waves levitate multiple objects - future technology for contactless medical procedures
In the perhaps not so distant future, surgeons could perform a range of medical procedures all without touching the patient. Surgeons won't be shrunk and sent into the body like in the 1960s Sci-Fi, Fantastic Voyage, but could program a specialised array of mini-speakers to create an intricate sound field that ‘traps' and manipulates selected objects in ‘acoustic tweezers' for manipulation within tissue.
