China is poised to dominate robotics markets far sooner than some had expected

Faced with rising labor costs, China is making a strong move to establish itself as the world’s leading manufacturer of robots.

The country is already the world’s largest buyer of industrial robots, but it’s lagged behind Japan, its perennial Asian market rival, when it comes to technology development.

There are big signs that’s changing rapidly. According to a report from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), China will triple its sales of robots by 2018. By 2019, the IFR predicts that more than 1.4 million new industrial robots will be installed in factories around the world, and China will account for 40 percent of global robotics sales.

The trend makes sense...

LISTING THE COUNTRIES WITH THE HIGHEST ROBOT DENSITY NUMBERS


via chartsbin.com

This chart shows Top 10 Countries by Robot Density.
A robot is a machine especially one programmable by a computer capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically. Robots can be guided by an external control device or the control may be embedded within. Robots may be constructed to take on human form but most robots are machines designed to perform a task with no regard to how they look.
Robots can be autonomous or semi-autonomous and range from humanoids such as Honda’s Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility (ASIMO) and TOSY’s TOSY Ping Pong Playing Robot (TOPIO) to industrial robots, medical operating robots, patient assist robots, dog therapy robots, collectively programmed swarm robots, UAV drones such as General Atomics MQ-1 Predator, and even mi...

The Best Indoor Drones for Honing Your Skills or Just Having Some great Fun

These drones are not for all weather conditions, but they make drone piloting a great hobby.

Drones can soon become an expensive pastime, but it can be surprisingly cheap if you just want to test the waters. Today, you can get fairly capable drones for under $100 that are great for practicing indoors before stepping up to a larger (and more expensive) quadcopter later.

Here are just some to consider whether you’re looking to get a taste of what drones are all about or just looking to have a bit of fun.

Unmanned Warrior is the world’s biggest robot war game, currently taking place for two weeks off the coast of Scotland. It was proposed by First Sea Lord Admiral George Zambellas to give airborne, surface, and underwater drones from various suppliers a chance to show off their prowess. Unmanned Warrior is part of Joint Warrior, an exercise involving 30 warships and submarines from 18 nations. But for the newly inaugurated robot portion, the U.S. is a strong presence, with teams from the Office of Naval Research (ONR).

As robots continue packing increased capability in smaller, lower-cost packages, these exercises are a glimpse into the future of naval warfare...

Anyone who grew up in the 80s or 90s remembers a time before branded Lego kits. If you wanted Star Wars ships you had to design them yourself. There weren’t any Indiana Jones or Batman kits, and forget about Lord Of The Rings sets.

Flybrix is a drone kit that takes Lego creations one step further: you can attach drone motors to your designs and fly them! The basic Flybrix kit comes with eight motors and all the specialized Lego-compatible bricks you need to get started. Drones can be flown with a smartphone app or a remote.

These buildable drones aren’t out yet, but according to the website they should ship by Christmas. Lego Logic works.

12 drone mishaps showing why the FAA hates drones

prodrone-byrd-drone-image www.spy-drones (1)

Whether good or bad, everyone seems to have an opinion on drones. Few technological advancements are as hotly debated as drones are right now.

The definition for what constitutes a drone varies, but most people agree that a drone is a remotely-piloted, unmanned aerial vehicle or aircraft. The distinction usually comes in its purpose — commercial or military.

With regard to military use, objections are fairly obvious — people have ethical concerns about “drone strikes,” or the idea that a remotely-piloted aircraft could swoop in on a target and destroy it, especially when that target is a person. On the commercial end, though, arguments are more complicated.

Consumer drone use brings with it privacy concerns (many models have attachable cameras), regulatory issues, and concerns about t...
