The Kilobot is a low-cost robot designed to make testing collective algorithms on hundreds or thousands of robots accessible to robotics researchers. This video describes the features of the Kilobot robot and how they can be controlled in a group.
This video demonstrates some of the capabilities of the Kilobot such as: communication, distance sensing, locomotion, and on-board computation. All demonstrations are fully autonomous, without any human controlling the robots.
Combining microfabrication techniques with modern tissue engineering, lung-on-a-chip offers a new in vitro approach to drug screening by mimicking the complicated mechanical and biochemical behaviors of a human lung.
Wyss researchers have engineered photosynthetic bacteria to produce simple sugars and lactic acid, an innovation that could lead to new, environmentally friendly methods for producing commodity chemicals in bulk.
