Robotics is becoming a mainstream feature of the tech world, and the following robotic concepts have finally become realities.
The iRobot Roomba 790, Camo robot, Kuratus mech and Raytheon XOS 2 exoskeleton are featured robotic advancements which are impossible to ignore.
iRobot Roomba 790
While not as impressive as the other robots on the list, the iRobot Roomba 790 vacuum cleaner is just as necessary.
The iRobot Roombas have been around since 2010, but the newest 790 version marks step forward for the gadget.
The Roomba 790 features a Wireless Command Center, allowing users to carry out instructions and control the robotic cleaner from anywhere within range.
Researchers at Harvard University recently revealed the soft camo-bot.
Inspired by sea creatures, the bot is able to climb and stick to walls thanks to a soft and flexible rubbery body.
By being covered in a network of tiny channels around the body, the robot is able to to disguise itself. As different dyes are pumped in, the robot can quickly alter its appearance.
The robots purpose is expected to be used for wildlife research.
Based on designs of popular Japanese animations, Suidobashi Heavy Industry’s Kuratas mech brings a fully functional pilotable robot to life.
The four-wheeled, 13-foot robot features an AR-style cockpit, “shot-proof armor”, and is painted with military-style insignias.
Raytheon XOS 2 exoskeleton
The Raytheon XOS 2 exoskeleton is a wearable robotic suit designed for military use.
The suit enables the user to wield increased strength, while only using 50 percent of the power required by its predecessor, the XOS.
