Now, Penn State researchers have designed a 2-D […]

Hands-on: The Switch Lite offers small improvements for gamers on the go

[ad_1] Congratulations! It’s a bouncing, baby gaming console! A nice tricolor gaming salad. If Switch players can get the d-pad back, maybe iPhone users can get the headphone jack back one of these days? The controls may look a bit bigger, but it’s just an optical illusion created by the smaller system housing. Compare and […]

For efficiency, both businesses utilize “the cloud” to transmit the large amounts of […]

Enhancing the locomotion of small robots with microwheels

[ad_1] Microbots could have several useful applications, particularly within biomedical and healthcare settings. For instance, due to their small size, these small machines could be inserted within the human body, allowing doctors to remotely carry out exams or operate regions affected by diseases. Developing approaches that enable the effective locomotion of microrobots in medical contexts, […]

US issuing hacking alert for small planes
