    Instead of extending your arm or using a selfie stick to snap shots of you and your crew, you could use a new pocket-size drone — dubbed the “AirSelfie” — to help you remotely capture aerial photos and videos. The AirSelfie is the brainchild of Italian entrepreneur Edoardo Stroppiana,...
  • UAVs and insect cyborgs collaborate to map disaster zones

    Robots don’t always need to be built from scratch. In the case of “biobots”, scientists have been able to hack into insects, turning them into remote-controlled scouts to gather data and map unfamiliar or unsafe areas. Researchers at North Carolina State University (NCSU) have already demonstrated the hardware and...
