An Astronaut On the ISS Will Control a New Type of Haptic Rover Here On Earth

This has been a year of haptics: From the widespread use of it in consumer electronics through the Apple Watch, to the boom in development of touchable interfaces. Soon, an astronaut aboard the ISS will attempt a major haptic experiment—by controlling a super-precise robot here on Earth using force feedback from… »8/28/15 1:04pm8/28/15 1:04pm


Uh Oh, MIT Developed a Way To Make Robotic Hands Way More Like Our Own
