Robot hands could gain a gentler touch with inexpensive tactile sensing technology utilizing widely available electronic chips, U.S. researchers say.

Engineers at Harvard University have developed a very inexpensive sensor for robotic hands sensitive enough to turn a brute machine into a dexterous manipulator, the school said in a release Thursday. . . Read Complete Report

Proof: Benghazi was an Obama Black Flag op gone wrong with following cover-up ( Video Reports)

It’s even worse than we previously thought. A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could “negotiate” the release of a “hostage” and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election! . . .

Within Reach: Engineers to Add Arms and Hands to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

It’s also within reach of the Report we archived on Aug, 5th 2012, Dextrous robotic hand gets thumbs up . (no pun intended)

from Science Daily

ScienceDaily (Aug. 2, 2012) — Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), such as those used by the military for surveillance and reconnaissance, could be getting a hand -and an arm- from engineers at Drexel University as part of a National Science Foundation grant to investigate adding dexterous limbs to the aircrafts. The project, whose subject harkens to the hovering android iconography of sci-fi movies, could be a step toward the use of UAVs for emergency response and search and rescue scenarios.

The team, led by Dr. Paul Oh, a professor in Drexel’s College of Engineering and head of the Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics department, will examine the reaction forces and torques associated with applying robotic arms to UAVs as part of his work in the Drexel Autonomous Systems Laboratory. . . .
