jumpingRobotWelcome back to our review of robotics trends. Our favorite findings this week are from Boston Dynamics. Their Sand Flea jumping robots is simply amazing! Checkout the video below. You’ll find also news and videos about other robotics projects, experiments and stuff. One of the most promising is the robotic skin from Meka Robotics. A robot fully covered with such a skin will for sure exhibit a smarter behavior. Indeed, it will perceive any contact, especially limb to limb ones such as an arm touching a torso. The flip side is that the amount of data to process will dramatically increase. Each square inch of skin will be generating dozens if not thousands of signals. Yet another challenge for the robotics community!
