Children consider technologies that pose an ambiguous threat as 'creepy'. Researchers pinpoint five aspects of technology that contribute to the feeling of ambiguity, examples of which are lack of control, ominous physical appearance and mimicry.
Researchers have developed a new soft robotic hand with numerous embedded fiber optic sensors and a new type of stretchable optical sensor. They believe incorporating the stretchable optical material into the hand could help provide more feedback.
Applying AI technology, researchers teach a robot to make appropriate reactive human facial expressions. Scientists say this could help build trust between humans and the humanoid robots they interact with.
New research allows those with robotic controlled prosthetic legs to walk almost as fast as an able bodied person.
