Scientists create aerogel-like gold foam that is as light as air

In addition to being one of the most coveted precious metals available, gold is known to have several applications in electronics and scientific research. In the past, researchers have used gold nanoparticle-based electronic skin to detect breast cancer. As part of a recent project, a team of scientists at ETH Zurich has developed a type…


Walking Robot Relies On Drone For Navigation Suppport03

This walking robot relies on a hexacopter to navigate rough, irregular terrain

In today’s world, we are constantly surrounded by automatons, be it cell phones, computers or even the humble wrist watch. Despite immense technological advances, in recent decades, scientists have not yet been able to develop walking robots that can independently traverse rough, irregular terrain, without faltering. To that end, the researchers from Autonomous Systems Lab at ETH…
