Swarm of Bacteria Builds Tiny Pyramid

A robotic micro-assembly process relies on several thousand flagellated bacteria acting as micro-workers to build a pyramidal structure. Work presented at IROS ’09 by Sylvain Martel and Mahmood Mohammadi from the NanoRobotics Laboratory, École Polytechnique de Montréal, Canada.

Augmented Reality Robots Take Flight

The AR Drone is one of the first consumer products to combine robotics with augmented reality. The quad-rotor vehicle carries two cameras and can stream video to an iPhone via Wi-Fi. On the phone, the live video is overlaid with flight controls and additional graphics for a variety of games.

Arduino Art

This past Saturday, IEEE Spectrum visited NYC Resistor’s “Art, Design, and the Arduino Microcontroller: a lineage” gallery party. Curated by Alicia Gibb, the show was a loving tribute. The collection ranged from early Arduino prototypes to modern projects made with the microcontroller. Highlights included toy cars hacked to paint like Jackson Pollack, a coffee table that cleans itself, and LED jackets that lit up as you moved.
