Nanoscopic Robots Build Parts For Tiny Electronics

by Michael Keller

Engineers looking to build electronic sensors and circuits so small they can’t be seen with the human eye may soon employ tiny helpers to do their work.

University of California, San Diego researchers have created two types of nanorobots that can swim over and burn patterns into ultraviolet light-sensitive surfaces. These controlled surface features are used to fabricate electronics components that measure a fraction of a human hair.

The self-propelled, chemically powered robots that are guided by magnetic fields could be valuable in the constant drive to make electronics for wearable tech and other applications smaller and smaller.

“All we need is these self-propelled nanorobots and UV light,” said engineering doctoral student Jinxing Li. “They work together like minions, moving and writing and are easily controlled by a simple magnet.”

How could Google Glass detect people’s emotions?

We humans mask our intentions with lies, misdirection and misinformation. But one of the most telling aspects of interpersonal communication isn’t words. It’s body language. Some researchers say that more than half of our communication happens through body language; tone of voice and spoken words were a distant second and third, respectively [source: Thompson].

These days, it’s not just people reading body language. Machines are picking up on those nonverbal cues, too, to the point where some can even read our emotions.

Take the SHORE Human Emotion Detector, which is an app (or “glassware”) for Google Glass, a wearable computer from Google. A German organization called the Fraunhofer Institute initially created SHORE for object recognition. SHORE stands for Sophisticated High-Speed Object Recognition Engine.
