Comments Off on UK Scientists Developing Autonomous Flying Honey Bee Robots!

Honey Bee Photo via Shutterstock Scientists from the UK Universities of Sheffield and Sussex have been collaborating on an ambitious project to produce the first accurate computer models of a honey bee brain . The project is designed to help us advance our understanding of Artificial Intelligence , and how animals think. The UK team will build models of the systems in the brain that govern a honey bee’s vision and sense of smell – and then they will use the information to create the first flying robot able to sense and act as autonomously as a bee.

Comments Off on The World’s First Tower Built by Flying Robots Rises in France

A swarm of robots working flawlessly in tandem have successfully built a beautiful undulating tower in a warehouse outside of Paris. The world’s first building built by flying robots was designed by architects Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler of Gramazio & Kohler , and it was assembled in a matter of days by levitating robots engineered and built by ETH Zurich . The installation, entitled Flight Assembled Architecture, was built in an art space called FRAC – check out a video of the process after the jump!

Comments Off on High-Flying Solar Robots Designed to Soar Above Dubai

Soaring like robotic birds, these energy generating flying devices were conceived by Carlos Campos Yamila Zynda Aiub Architects for the skies of Dubai. Called Wings, the curious “creatures” use solar cells to store energy, which they then use to illuminate the land below them at night in a flutter of constellation-like formations.
