Why Robots That Bend Are Better

18 Peb 2021

Robots of the future may be softer, squishier and bendier than robots today. This could make them ideal for space exploration. Check out kiwico.com/Veritasium50 for 50% off your first month of any subscription!
On Thursday February 18th, 2021 the NASA Perseverance Rover will land on Mars. It is a wonderful robot, made out of steel and wire - but will future robots look like Perseverance? There is an emerging field of research on "soft robots", where the machines are flexible. These soft robots have many advantages over traditional robots - they're safer, lighter, more flexible and can change their shape and size.
NASA is investigating the use of soft robots for space missions. For future visits to Enceladus or Europa, a lander could cut a hole in the ice and then insert a compliant robot through the hole. This robot could then grow and change shape on the other side.

So,finally cost of breakfast individually worth 24rs right! Now It's time for calculation : Firsrly,25+25+25=75rs 👍 Final calculation; 24+24+24=72 72 + stolen 2rs = 74rs WHERE IS 1Rs ??? Rs is Currency of INDIA

  • How to go faster than the speed of light :have the first clock send a pulse to the second one, then it starts, when the pulse gets sent back the lazer gets fired. The time it took - speed of the pulse = speed of light, even better if the pulse goes at the speed of light then you divide the time you get by half.

      Mark chaffeeMark chaffee14 jam yang lalu
    • Won't then both clocks be synchronized exactly? One clock sits by apparatus designed to emit an identifiable burst of light and is programmed to stop running at the moment this light is emitted. The other clock is designed to stop running when it detects this light.

These clocks are designed to begin when they detect a certain (sudden and reducing) change of tension in the tether. Destroy the central anchor.

      Mark chaffeeMark chaffee14 jam yang lalu

  • *IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR YOU!* I want you to know that there is Someone who really loves you and that He cares about you. Someone who’s giving you a hope when you think your life is pointless. Someone who understans you even if you don’t understand yourself. Someone who’s with you when you have a trouble and can not find solution. Someone who’s listening you even when your mouth is shut but your heart is speaking very loudly. *HE IS HERE FOR EVERYONE* who have scars on soul even for those who’s trying to find refuge and found non. Someone who came to put his mercy on you and to tell you that you‘re special to Him. Someone who’s not ashamed to call you his Child. He is here to help you. He is here to show you his Love that he’s caring for you from the very beginning of your first breath and He will stand besides you at your very last breath. *WHO HE IS?* The Son of living God, *JESUS CHRIST.* He laid down his glory *Philippians 2:7.* Was born of a virgin *Matthew 1:18-25.* Wrapped in flesh *John 1:14.* Lived a perfect life and never sin *1John 3:5, 1Peter **2:22**.* Shed his precious blood for you on the cross of Calvary to paid the debt of our sins *1Corinthians 15:1-4* - How SIN entered the world *Genesis 3:1-24* *WHY HE DID THAT?* …for YOU! _For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life_ - *John 3:16.* And this is the *GOSPEL OF SALVATION* by which also you are saved _That Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures_ - *1Corinthians 15:1-4.* Believe what He did on the cross for you, put your trust in Him and be saved, sealed with the Holy Spirit and Sanctified until the day of Redemption! Never forget that He loves you no matter what have you done in your liftime. As ti is written: _If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness_ - *1John 1:9* *JESUS CHRIST* is: 🗝The DOOR to EVERLASTING LIFE - _I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture_ - *John 10:9* 🗝The WAY, the TRUTH, the LIFE - _Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me_ - *John 14:6* Shalom, God bless you! 🙏

  • Can you help with a problem. Lets say, Im standing near the sun and say a charge q+ is on the earth, from my point of view the charge q+ is moving as the earth revolves around the sun and as moving charges are suppose to produce a magnetic field it dosnt seem to.While the person on the earth with the charge q+ it is stationary. So, at what point does the charge chose to produce the magnetic field. lets say normaly u pass a current through wire, it produces a magnetic field, but if you were to move along with the charge, would it produce any magnetic field.

    Icabod PsillycybermanIcabod PsillycybermanHari Yang lalu
    • @Oxy Bright Dark But those big spinning devices are on earth where there is already gravity-the centrifugal force then works towards the circumference of the device.i dont get how centrifugal force would work where there is no gravity. The people in the space station (or whatever) are not held to the surface of the thing that is spinning unlike the example of water in a bucket?

      Icabod PsillycybermanIcabod PsillycybermanHari Yang lalu
    • If you spin a bucket round and round, the water contained won’t fall out, because it’s sent constantly backwards into the bucket, rather than into the earth. Centrifugal force, which is actually a combination of forces, would work in space. But when you go towards the middle of the ship, it’ll spin faster and the gravity would be stronger. This means that the ship would need to be quite big, and the middle compartment not liveable, or in the shape of a donut or frisbee, spinning so that the outside is faster. They use big spinning devices to test G forces. Tom Scott made a video about it.

  • I don't think they'll ever be more capable than hard, rigid robots. I think hard robots will just get smarter A.I. and more joints and rotation points, thereby giving them a wider range of applications they can handle and being better at not hurting humans. Maybe some specific situations where they have to directly deal with people, but I think advanced A.I. and maybe a squishy shell applied to a hard robot would more than make up for that.
