Video/AnimationBill Meets BotsIn April 2018, Bill Gates visited several Harvard University robotics labs, including two of Wyss Institute Core Faculty members Rob Wood and Conor Walsh. While visiting Wood’s Harvard Microrobotics he learned about the RoboBee and soft grippers for deep sea exploration, and in the Walsh’s Harvard Biodesign Lab he learned about the soft wearable exosuit...
Video/AnimationHAMR-E: Inverted and Vertical Climbing MicrorobotHAMR-E, created in collaboration with Rolls-Royce, is a micro-robot that uses electroadhesion to scale vertical, inverted, and curved surfaces, allowing it to explore spaces that are too small for humans. HAMR-E could one day be used to inspect jet engines and other complicated machines without requiring them to be taken apart. Credit: Wyss Institute at...
