Why Robots That Bend Are Better

Robots of the future may be softer, squishier and bendier than robots today. This could make them ideal for space exploration. Check out kiwico.com/Veritasium50 for 50% off your first month of any subscription!
On Thursday February 18th, 2021 the NASA Perseverance Rover will land on Mars. It is a wonderful robot, made out of steel and wire - but will future robots look like Perseverance? There is an emerging field of research on "soft robots", where the machines are flexible. These soft robots have many advantages over traditional robots - they're safer, lighter, more flexible and can change their shape and size.
NASA is investigating the use of soft robots for space missions. For future visits to Enceladus or Europa, a lander could cut a hole in the ice and then insert a compliant robot through the hole. This robot could then grow and change shape on the other side.

    After talking about the under water exploration I was thinking that you could fill the tubes with water. Then I thought that instead of a rowing motion, instead use a fabric that when rolled through the motors would pull itself through the water. You would have to rotate the tubes into a 3 sided pyramid and have the return part of the tube be blocked by say a corner cone.

    Do a video about where time passes the slowest. If we lived near a black hole, like in Interstellar, time would pass a lot faster. A civilization in the slowest ticking time, would have more time to advance and survive to the end of the universe compared to one living near a black hole. Is the edge of the galaxy the place where time passes the slowest?

    All this is interesting, but there are more interesting things. Modern ideas about the universe are too superficial. For just one billion euros, I am ready to tell everyone interested how the universe was actually born and what matter is made of. And also, what is wrong with the Einstein formula (A. Poincare) and how to overcome the speed of light using a reasonable supply of energy. I almost forgot why all the measurements of the speed of light carried out so far cannot be considered correct and why different photons must have different speeds, the speed of light is not a constant. And also, why black holes are black (hint-the reason is not that light can't escape because of gravity, everything is more complicated here).

So,finally cost of breakfast individually worth 24rs right! Now It's time for calculation : Firsrly,25+25+25=75rs 👍 Final calculation; 24+24+24=72 72 + stolen 2rs = 74rs WHERE IS 1Rs ???

    How to go faster than the speed of light :have the first clock send a pulse to the second one, then it starts, when the pulse gets sent back the lazer gets fired. The time it took - speed of the pulse = speed of light, even better if the pulse goes at the speed of light then you divide the time you get by half.

    With both clocks stopped, could they not be brought back together whereby you'd have the time difference of the clocks. The distance between the clocks was known and exact...

  80. Mark chaffee

    Mark chaffee3 days ago

    Won't then both clocks be synchronized exactly? One clock sits by apparatus designed to emit an identifiable burst of light and is programmed to stop running at the moment this light is emitted. The other clock is designed to stop running when it detects this light.

  81. Mark chaffee

    Mark chaffee3 days ago

    Tether two clocks to a central anchor with two equal and known length...tethers.. Move both the clocks in opposite directions until they reach the limits of the length of the tether. These clocks are designed to begin when they detect a certain (sudden and reducing) change of tension in the tether. Destroy the central anchor.

    *Many robots (including soft robots) are programmed for locomotion and other forms of motor control based upon the wiring principles of central pattern generators* (CPGs)-neural circuits that produce a wide frequency range of oscillatory rhythmic outputs even in the absence of sensory feedback-that have been adapted by evolution over hundreds of millions of years across the animal kingdom for axial, quadrupedal, and bipedal locomotion, as well as many other peculiar forms of locomotion, including rolling locomotion akin to that of the robot showcased in this video here.

So, at what point does the charge chose to produce the magnetic field. lets say normaly u pass a current through wire, it produces a magnetic field, but if you were to move along with the charge, would it produce any magnetic field.

    @Oxy Bright Dark But those big spinning devices are on earth where there is already gravity-the centrifugal force then works towards the circumference of the device.i dont get how centrifugal force would work where there is no gravity. The people in the space station (or whatever) are not held to the surface of the thing that is spinning unlike the example of water in a bucket?

    If you spin a bucket round and round, the water contained won’t fall out, because it’s sent constantly backwards into the bucket, rather than into the earth. Centrifugal force, which is actually a combination of forces, would work in space. But when you go towards the middle of the ship, it’ll spin faster and the gravity would be stronger. This means that the ship would need to be quite big, and the middle compartment not liveable, or in the shape of a donut or frisbee, spinning so that the outside is faster. They use big spinning devices to test G forces. Tom Scott made a video about it.

    If you bend a pool noodle too much it snaps

    Thats because you are confusing "scientist" with "Scientist ©".

    bendable robots sounds like commie gobbledigook garbage akin to "eat the bugs" or soylent. Its like calling electric scooters "hover boards". It reeks of civilizational decline and coping.

    Seems like everything that bends is better. Seems true in physics engines too, if done correctly.. and by bend, you mean flex. Swords that flex are usually also better.
