How small can a drone get? A team of Dutch scientists tried to find the answer to this question. The device created by the researchers is not only small in dimensions, but can also work in a fully autonomous mode.
Personal computers and other office equipment take up a lot of space and are bulky to carry around for highly mobile people who are always on the move. Why suffer inconvenience when there are AR technologies that can create a virtual copy of just about anything?
Domino is a company that greatly prizes their reputation, which is why they make sure that their clients only receive perfect products. To effectively ensure pizza quality, the company has turned to new technologies.
Many companies are developing their own delivery robots, with a variety of solutions available on the market. The key drawback of most developments is their inability to handle steps and staircases.

Not long ago, Boston Dynamics introduced SpotMini, a four-legged robot scheduled to go on sale this summer. The device’s key feature is its ability to move objects whose weight is many times greater than its own. The innovation has caused such a sensation that a potential competitor to SpotMini has been created in China.
Canadian company Clearpath Robotics presented their latest invention: the Heron marine multicopter, which is the logical extension of Kingfisher, the company’s previous marine drone.
The four-legged HyQReal robot was developed by scientists at the Italian Institute of Technology and presented at the ICRA 2019 conference. The machine demonstrated some uncanny talents at the event: despite its small size, it managed to move a 3 tonne plane across a 14 meter distance.
Amphibous robots have been around for a long time, but they are all equipped with dangerous blades that can cause harm to marine animals and plants. A fundamentally different approach was demonstrated by scientists from the University of Pennsylvania and McGill University, who have made their Aqua2 machine completely safe.
When given specific instructions, robots are very useful in industry. But researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) believe, it would make more sense to turn them into full-fledged members of the work team.
Little Printer is a device created by Berg, serving as a means of quickly printing small documents - however, the project initially flopped. Today, the concept has been revived, but in a brand-new format.
