MIT engineers have taught robot molding

A person understands what effect his action with the material will lead to, already at the age of several months.

However, robots are not yet able to understand the properties of an object before they grab 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.
