Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has received classified information. Tehran calls hacking database robot biggest success in recent years.
The device failed to open without any problems, because his body in the capture was not damaged.
True, what information was compromised as a result of Iran 'e-filling "of the U.S. drone is still unknown. However, Tehran maintains that extracted information is much more informative than the ones that managed to extract from the downed aircraft a year ago US RQ-170, said TV-Press.

The word "robot" entered our lexicon relatively recently - only in the last century. But it seems that with the robotic creatures familiar humanity for much longer, since the dawn of civilization, people were able to create (or create them) amazing mechanical machines and intelligent action which still raises doubts: could you androids were described in ancient times strange creatures? As you know, android - a humanoid robot that can execute orders and sometimes make their own decisions. Mention of such creatures exist in many old books, and they are often covered with images of myths Read more [...]
Experts from the Georgia Institute of robots skillfully taught to cheat. As a basis for the development of its researchers took a model of behavior of birds and squirrels, which, it appears, are excellent liars. A team of scientists led by Professor Ronald Arkin first conducted biological research, during which examined how proteins are hiding acorns in caches. If another animal can see a cache, the protein begins to cheat and go to false caches to introduce other protein misleading and hide from them the true location of the stocks. The researchers also examined how birds "bluffing" Read more [...]
Diego-san - a new robot that can express emotions. Android was created by specialists of the University of California at San Diego, in collaboration with companies Kokoro Co. and Hanson Robotics, reports Gizmag. Engineers have tried to make it look like a one year old child, but the robot was a bit more due to the fact that the developers abandoned the use of the expensive miniature components. Height of the robot is 130 cm Weight - 30 kg. The body is equipped with 44 pneumatic android. The head unit has 27 moving parts. Diego-san is able to express a variety of emotions, including laughter, Read more [...]
Came the first signs of the coming revolution. Within a few years the global economy will change beyond recognition. Baxter - a new generation of industrial robots. It is so easily adaptable and learns that he can just show up, what to do, just like a working man. Conventional industrial robots are very expensive in programming, unable to cope with even the slightest variations in the environment, and just so dangerous that they have to close in on people grills. Robot development of the American company Baxter Rethink Robotics is very different from its predecessors. It can be taught in Read more [...]
Researchers have developed a robotic platform designed for the study of planetary satellites and asteroids.Researchers at Stanford University in collaboration with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said that the study of heavenly bodies like Phobos or Moon, the best cope spherical robots covered with thorns. Mission robotic hedgehogs will look simply: first budget carrier platform reset one or more robots on the surface of an asteroid or a satellite. Then the self-contained "hedgehogs" in diameter will be less than 60 to ride and jump Read more [...]
Nine months later, Boden developed a humanoid with a fundamentally new types of limb movements. As a rule, the best solution is not a humanoid robot, as "non-human" forms provide a much better performance of tasks. But scientists at the University of Zurich has created a fundamentally new type of humanoid robot Roboy, which will help people in everyday tasks. The main feature is its new robot system movements. Management system Roboy created by analogy with human limbs - the robot is controlled by motorized tendon, eliminating him from the traditional robot sharp ratcheting. Read more [...]
Humanly universal robot needed and rescue workers and soldiers. That's just beyond it is very difficult, while more and more difficult and awkward original. Still, there is hope.What did not happen at these Web sites: robokolibri and cases and even robobelki ... But the robot reproducing human movement (and reproducing in full), while the problem. It is very difficult Homo: both can run and climb, and even swim, and the number of degrees of freedom of the little people is enormous. However, researchers from the University of Tokyo (Japan) led by Yuto Nakanishi (Yuto Nakanishi) leave Read more [...]
Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a robot that can deceive each other. They got the idea of developing a model of the behavior of ordinary squirrels and birds. The practical application of research will in future military development. The work is published in IEEE Intelligent Systems.
A team of scientists led by Professor Ronald Arkin started with biological research - they studied the behavior of squirrels collecting acorns and concealing them in their hiding places. When another protein can peep cache animal changes its behavior. Instead of reaching out to Read more [...]
This soaring kopter-drone with a screw located in the ring. Unlike their colleagues in the shop, it does not take any navigation system - just a pair of optical high-definition cameras, the difference in the images from which the UAV is used to stabilize the situation in the air to the ground. Optionally there infrared camera (for observation at night), an electric motor, a screw ... all. Stop. And where is the battery? He is not. No, really: states that the robot lives even without batteries on board this dramatically reduces the weight and allows you to fly on a single charge up to Read more [...]
Controlled explosions at the feet of "soft robot" of silicone make him jump thirty times higher than its own growth. Scientists led by the eminent George Whitesides (George Whitesides, leading Hirsch index of living chemists) of Harvard University (USA) have created a three-legged ... device (otherwise you could not tell), moved by something like a jet propulsion engine. In soft robot legs there are channels (one per course) with a soft flap on the end. Each of the channels is pumped methane-oxygen mixture (1:2). The inlet gas mixture and ignition timing is controlled by microcomputer Read more [...]
Why was it necessary to drag robogumanoida into the stratosphere? Well, for example, in order not to risk another protein-and-arrow ("Where are you now?"). In fact, the organizers of this action plans are not so simple.Spanish company Zero 2 Infinity fulfills a kind low-end-sector space travel, planning to put on a stream turpolety to stratospheric heights of up to 36 km, where the sky is black, the world is round, and the stars in brightness almost equal space.For these and similar species can pay much more than $ 143 thousand, unless, of course, use a missile. (Here and below the Read more [...]
In 2010, the Udmurt State University has won a grant of the Russian Government, and soon began to create robots. Not being in the initial stage of the necessary technical capacity, appealed for help to colleagues from Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod and St. Petersburg universities and together understand mobile robotics, which is primarily in Russia has been neglected. His contribution to the creation of a unique technology also made St. Petersburg "Transmash", based on which he made the first lunar rover, and enterprises in Hong Kong. One of the first results of the hard work has become Read more [...]
Everyone has a friend who sympathize with us in case of any trouble, which shares our feelings when we are filled with joy. Friends always notice our frowns when we are upset or offended. Scientists and psychologists have long been aware that these types of sympathy and empathy is one of the main components of building social relationships. Now, researchers tested whether it can bring together people with robots. Gonsayor Barbara (Barbara Gonsior) from the Technical University of Munich (Technische Universitat Munchen) carried out a study of whether the effects of "reflection" Read more [...]
Control by thought, blurring the line between human and robot to merge with the machine to return to an active life avatar leaving cinemas to take place among us. While it is mainly a laboratory, but the day is near when the new items can really improve the quality of life of people - mainly those whose physical abilities are limited. At the University of Barcelona in the European research project, scientists bring together man and machine, using, in particular, skin electrodes and stereo glasses. Thanks to this symbiosis actually feels connected "in the body," a robot that can Read more [...]
