  • Automated Ice Sculpting

    This machine developed by researchers from McGill University, in Canada, makes ice sculptures by carefully laying down deposits of ice. Here it begins to build a snowflake sculpture. (The video is shown at five times normal speed.)

  • Crash-Test Robots

    Researchers at the German Aerospace Center are studying the impact of collisions between wayward robots and crash-test dummies. They hope to develop effective accident-prevention systems.

  • Detecting Pedestrians

    In this video, a camera rests atop an ordinary car. Software developed by researchers at ETH Zurich and Toyota rapidly identifies pedestrians and other vehicles.

  • Tumbling Around

    This robot, Adelopod, was created by researchers at the University of Minnesota. It tumbles over itself–a simple, low-power way to get around.

  • Precision Control of Micro Machines

    Researchers control microscopic magnets individually by manipulating magnetic and electric fields. The magnets could one day be used to assemble microscopic structures or deliver drugs to a cell.
