Soft Robotics Toolkit
The Soft Robotics Toolkit is a collection of shared resources to support the design, fabrication, modeling, characterization, and control of soft robotic devices. The Toolkit was developed as part of educational research being undertaken in the Harvard Biodesign Lab. The ultimate aim of the Toolkit is to advance the field of soft robotics by allowing designers and researchers to build upon each other’s work. The Toolkit includes an open source fluidic control board, detailed design documentation describing a wide range of soft robotic components (including actuators and sensors), and related files that can be downloaded and used in the design, manufacture, and operation of soft robots. In combination with low material costs and increasingly accessible rapid prototyping technologies such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and CNC mills, the Toolkit enables soft robotic components to be produced easily and affordably.

Artificial Snakeskin Helps Robots Get Their Slither On
In a new article in Science Robotics this week, researchers from Harvard show how mimicking snake scales with kirigami-inspired deformable materials enabled them to make a limbless soft robot that can crawl by simply inflating and deflating itself over and over.

Watch Boston Dynamics’ robot shake off an aggressive human
According to Boston Dynamics, this was a test of SpotMini’s ability to deal with a disturbance when trying to go through a door. The robot, after getting the command to go through the door, is operating autonomously. The company is sure to mention, “This testing does not irritate or harm the robot.”

Future Transport: How is London responding to technological innovation | London City Hall
Connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) or driverless cars won't be on the road until the 2030s at least and could add to congestion
Dockless cycle schemes need to be able to operate across London to be effective
There is no control system in place for drones and droids
TfL is monitoring technological developments but this needs to be embedded across the whole organisation

When will we get a machine Michelangelo?
True AI fine art will be both painfully boring and highly stimulating, and that will be represent progress. Beauty, after all, cannot be quantified, and the very act of questioning the definition of aesthetics moves all art forward—something we’ve seen over and over again in the history of human-made art. The realization of AI will bring new dimensions to these questions. It will also be a triumph of materialism, further eroding the specialness of the human species and unveiling a world that has neither mystery nor God in which humans are merely machines made of inanimate materials. If we are right, it will also bring a new generation of artists, and with them, new Eiffel towers beyond our wildest imagination.
