Technology never sleeps, and it's that sort of can-do attitude that gets people (and apparently machines) places in this hustle-bustle world.
As the United Nations debates legislation that could outlaw ‘killer robots’, scientists predict that artificially intelligent systems could one day decide to kill humans “for the greater good.”
Listen to Lord of the Flies, A Clockwork Orange, The Little Prince, and more.

So, you already own little remote-control cars, planes, boats and submarines ... what else could there be?
The swiftlet may not look much different than other little birds, but it has one unique ability – it builds its nest out of its own saliva. Inspired by the swiftlet, scientists at Imperial College London's Aerial Robotics Lab have created a robotic q
Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks, says a group of leading scientists
Robo-Washer all-in-one hand washer and dryer aims to be the next great bathroom revolution
Computer scientists have created machines that have the balance and agility to walk and run across rough and uneven terrain, making them far more useful in navigating human environments.
Lift an extra 40 pounds with little effort
We're all familiar with ant colonies, where every tiny creature is running around doing just what it needs to. Well it looks like SRI International has taken inspiration from the giant mounds of insects, to create their own swarms of tiny worker robo
Studying how mantises see in 3-D could provide clues about how 3-D vision evolved in the natural world and lead to new techniques in implementing 3-D recognition and depth perception in computer vision and robotics.
Even conventional industrial robots are becoming safer to work around, making them more likely to collaborate with humans.
When the private spaceflight company SpaceX launches its third cargo delivery mission to the International Space Station, the flight's robotic Dragon spacecraft will be packed with 5,000 lbs. of vital supplies, including some intriguing technology an

Science will control our shapes, our intelligence, even create new breeds of men – violent men to fight our wars, docile men to do our work – hell on earth.
While many people no doubt still look at Intuitive Surgical's da Vinci robotic surgical system as a sort of "wonder of the future," it's actually been around now for over 10 years.
The key to the mechanical digger was figuring out the perfect speed at which it would and shut its shells to create a pocket of wet sand to move through easily.
Whether or not you remember this band of musical bots from their 2010 cover of Rock Lobster, your life has indeed been missing their computerized tones. Put together by roboticist James Cochrane, the Bit-52's are a tribute band to end all tribute ban
Building satellites in the future could be as easy as sending robots packed with hardware into orbit, if a new project from Darpa takes off.
The outbreak of a fire aboard a ship out to sea is pretty much one of the worst things that can happen. When the flames start licking at the sails and rigging (ships still have those, right?) you're just as likely to die of smoke inhalation as you ar
The German company Festo has been on our radar lately. It recently invented an entirely new way to capture wind energy by mimicking the movements of bird wings.
