‘Robotic skin’ turns everyday objects into robots

‘Robotic skin’ turns everyday objects into robots
Robots are typically built with a single purpose in mind. In contrast, new elastic sheets full of high-tech gear turn almost anything into useful robots. Robotics are usually something rigid, heavy, and built for a specific purpose. New ‘Robotic Skins’ technology developed by Yale researchers flips that notion on its head, allowing users to animate the inanimate and turn everyday objects into robots.

Less sophisticated 'bots' help human groups

Less sophisticated 'bots' help human groups
  In a series of experiments using teams of human players and robotic AI players, the inclusion of 'bots' boosted the performance of human groups and the individual players, researchers found. The study appears in the journal Nature.

The latest standard in robotics

The latest standard in robotics
On the wall of Aaron Dollar's office is a poster for R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), the 1920 Czech play that gave us the word "robot." The story ends with the nominal robots seizing control of the factory of their origin and then wiping out nearly all of humanity. Dollar, fortunately, has something more cheerful in mind for the future of human-robot relations. He sees them as helpers in our daily lives—performing tasks like setting the table or assisting with the assembly of your new bookcase.

Acoustic resonator paves the way for better communication

Acoustic resonator paves the way for better communication
Yale researchers have developed a high-frequency version of a device known as an acoustic resonator that could advance the field of quantum computing and information processing. Hong Tang, Yale's Llewellyn West Jones Jr. Professor of Electrical Engineering & Physics, and his research team, accomplish this with what's also known as a piezo-optomechanical device.

Sticky nanoparticles help fight cancer

Sticky nanoparticles help fight cancer
Sticky nanoparticles that deliver drugs precisely to their targets—and then stay there—could play a crucial role in fighting ovarian and uterine cancers. A team of researchers at Yale found that a treatment using bioadhesive nanoparticles loaded with a potent chemotherapy drug proved more effective and less toxic than conventional treatments for gynecological cancer.

Device lengthens the life of quantum information

Device lengthens the life of quantum information
Yale University scientists have reached a milestone in their efforts to extend the durability and dependability of quantum information. For the first time, researchers at Yale have crossed the "break even" point in preserving a bit of quantum information for longer than the lifetime of its constituent parts. They have created a novel system to encode, spot errors, decode, and correct errors in a quantum bit, also known as a "qubit."

Imaging tool will be applied to common brain disorders

Imaging tool will be applied to common brain disorders
A Yale-led team of researchers developed a new approach to scanning the brain for changes in synapses that are associated with common brain disorders. The technique may provide insights into the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of disorders, including epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. The study was published in Science Translational Medicine. Certain changes in synapses—the junctions between nerve cells in the brain—have been linked with brain disorders.

Nanogel delivers possible treatment for cancer

Nanogel delivers possible treatment for cancer
An immunotherapy drug delivery system created at Yale that can carry multiple drugs inside a tiny particle is heading toward its first phase of clinical trials for a possible new treatment for cancer. The delivery system, a nanogel developed in the lab of associate professor Tarek Fahmy, can be used for multiple combinations of drugs for many different cancers and some immune disorders. The platform is designed to deliver multiple drugs with different chemical properties.

Can robots make good team mates?

Are robots our evil overlords, or our personal servants? Another possibility altogether is that they’re our dependable co-workers, helping us put together that new Ikea bookcase.

Invisible batteries come closer to reality

Remember all the high-tech transparent technology Tom Cruise used in Minority Report? Well, it’s been 13 years since that movie came out, where are our see-through devices?

A better way to study Li-air batteries

If Li-air batteries live up to their promise, we could one day be driving electric cars 500 miles or more without recharging, or using laptops for weeks without having to plug in. They could also replace Li-ion batteries, currently the standard in many consumer electronics.
