Man versus machine has quickly become man merges with machine as assistive technologies continue to develop. Today, the loss of a limb does not automatically translate into the loss of mobility. This year introduced the Cybathlon, where athletes compete for gold using their assistive technologies. Prosthetics range from body-powered replacements to high-tech interfaces that involve direct brain control.

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. […]

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 […]
