People living with disabilities don't want special treatment; they want equal opportunity. The ability to act independently of, and at the same time connect with, others when moving, communicating, learning, working, and socializing.

Connected IoT tech promotes accessibility for all

It’s been known for some time that organic neuromorphic robots can learn. Now they can move too. Autonomously.

Human-like brain helps robot out of a maze

System uses tiny magnetic beads to rapidly measure the position of muscles and relay that information to a bionic prosthesis.

Magnets could offer better control of prosthetic limbs

Neuralink is an ambitious startup backed by Elon Musk that hopes to rid the world of brain-related illnesses using a coin-sized chip

Neuralink: The Company That Wants To Put A Chip In Your Head

How are bioprosthetics made? How are they attached to the body and controlled? How are they different from other prosthetics and is it true it will be possible to move them with our minds in the future?

Bioprosthetics: Can They Really Be Controlled With Our Minds?

The BionicSwifts, an invention by the company Festo is an agile aerial acrobatic robot that is based of the model of a swallow.
