Ai-Da: The Humanoid Robot Artist

Introducing you to the next marvel of mechatronics, we have Ai-Da. She is named after Ada Lovelace who is relished as the world’s first computer programmer. Ai-Da was designed by Engineered Arts, a Cornish robotics company, in collaboration with algorithms developed by scientists at the University of Oxford, and robotic arms and hands developed by…

VertiGo: A Disney Mecha-marvel

Ranging from the innovative machinery since 1964 at the World’s Fair to current day’s world-encompassing theme parks, Disney has taken lead in what we call innovative “Imagineering.” One must not ignore the importance of integrating mechatronics into entertainment. With just production lines for metals and ores, the world would be a monotonous and dreary place….

Da Vinci Robotic System

The Da Vinci robotic surgical system is a UI based robotic system that has been developed by the American robotic technology giant , Intuitive Healthcare. This system provides the surgeon a highly advanced set of instruments that can perform robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery. It is not the robot that performs the surgery entirely on it’s…
