  In many ways, the human race has advanced radically in a very short period of time. People born with missing limbs can now live full and “normal” lives, as can those who have suffered injuries and amputations. This is a far cry from the days when an amputated leg meant either life with a […]

For quite some time now, Festo, a leading pneumatics company, has been innovating in the robotics field by creating impressive and very unique robots inspired by nature. The video below, is a good summary of their innovative work. Make sure you also have a look at their Youtube channel recently populated with lost of videos. Via BotJunkie.

The second iteration of the Raytheon’s exoskeleton has been recently unveiled. It is now much lighter, stronger and faster then its predecessor. The XOS 2 is a wearable robotic suit capable of radically increasing the strength of the human wearing it. Designed for the millitary, it is intended to help soldiers manipulate heavy equipment such as missiles and ammunition. At the unveiling event, actor Clark […]

Some time ago, the RobotShop team decided to build a telepresence system. Usually, these kinds of systems are sadly limited to a web-cam and a screen on wheels, and are simply a glorified videophone. This is not the case at RobotShop since we love robots and are all for crazy projects. This is why, a full […]

Here’s yet another example of what you can do with LEGO: an exoskeleton to make a robotic hand. The designer is David Hyman from MOC pages. His prototype uses 3 rotation sensors for the fingers and two touch sensors for the wrist. It’s not a whole hand but rather a hand with two fingers: the […]

Here’s a video introducing the latest model of the exoskeleton by Lockheed Martin. The purpose of an exoskeleton is to increase the physical strength and endurance of whoever’s wearing it. It can allow soldiers to walk much longer and carry heavy loads without tiring. With the HULC by Lockheed Martin, a built-in microcomputer synchronizes the […]
