Robotics and the Future of Making Things
In the not-too-distant future, robots and humans will work side by side to accomplish things neither could achieve on their own. Maurice Conti, director of Applied Research and Innovation at Autodesk, gives his perspective on the future of robotics.
By connecting cloud design and robotic additive manufacturing, Sicilian boat builders Livrea have made huge strides in building the first 3D-printed yacht. The company has successfully 3D printed the yacht’s hull using advanced, multimaterial, polymer composites.
The creative team at Merlin Magic Making produces attractions for theme parks such as LEGOLAND, Madame Tussauds, and the London Eye. The team uses a robot to mechanize its production and speed up delivery times.
Traditionally, manufacturers considered robotic arms to be a significant investment. But startup company Automata is changing that perception with the launch of Eva—a lightweight, affordable, easy-to-use robotic arm.
HyProCell uses laser-based additive and subtractive manufacturing, enabling machine interaction to optimize workflow and data handling.
