Amazon starts testing an autonomous liver robot near its Seattle home in the northwest of the United States. The "Scout" is a six-wheeled all-electric trolley that reaches just above knee height. The robot has the size of a small cool box and rolls over the pavement at walking speed. Deliveries with the robots will take place from Monday to Friday and only during daylight. The trolleys will autonomously follow a set delivery route, but will initially be accompanied by an Amazon employee. The technology giant ensures that the devices "can safely and efficiently navigate around pets, pedestrians and any other object in their path".

Existing robots are hard and have limited flexibility. But what are soft and flexible as robots, like the grippers pioneers at TU Delft are developing. This flexibility makes all kinds of new applications possible. A Dutch pioneer is Rob Scharff, PhD student at Delft University of Technology. If you build soft, flexible robots, all kinds of new applications are within reach. Daniela Rus, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the American research institute MIT. Soft robots broaden our view of what a robot is. Much more diversity is possible. Not only in terms of shapes, but also in terms of materials.

Created by Tokyo-based Groove X, Lovot is a cute companion robot that’s been in development for the last three years. It’s just over a foot tall and in many ways resembles a child’s cuddly toy. But Lovot is trying to be something altogether smarter, as beneath its soft covering you’ll find numerous sensors that detect human touch, though quite how it responds isn’t entirely clear. There’s also a less-hard-to-miss camera perched on its head for navigation.

Boston Dynamics has been developing advanced robots for quite some time now, including the robot dog SpotMini . YouBionic has now introduced a concept with 3D printed arms to give this beautiful base not only feet but also hands. Only a concept? This company offers a fully 3D printed arm solution for the Boston Dynamics SpotMini. YouBionic sells the 3D models $179 which you have to print and assemble yourself. There is not much documentation yet on how the system will work in practice - the STLs contain the structural components, but not the electronics. And that's not unimportant. It's a fascinating concept and can be the beginning of a true component based robotics solution.
