MIT engineers have taught robot molding

The person understands what effect his action will bring with the material, already at the age of several months.

However, robots are not yet available understanding of the properties of the object before they capture it.

The researchers created an algorithm that allows you to simulate the deformation - with its help, the robot was able to understand how much you can deform the object, knowing only its shape.

Earlier, MIT engineers made a revolution inhydrogen nano batteries, which use the water splitting reaction to generate energy. Scientists have developed a technology that allows you to very quickly charge smartphones with virtually no energy loss.
