MantaDroid Robot: Smart Underwater Robot
“MantaDroid” may sound like the name of a villain from a ’90s-era Saturday morning cartoon like Street Sharks, but it’s actually the latest cutting-edge piece of robotics research from the National University of Singapore. A manta ray-inspired swimming robot, MantaDroid is able to “fly” smoothly and speedily through the water, while showing off an impressive level of agility in the process.

JumpRoach Robot: Smart Beetle Robot
JumpRoach Robot can leap a little more than five feet high, which is impressive for its about 2 ounce size. It uses a Dash Robotics body, which houses a DC motor, eight latex bands, and a diamond-shaped contraption that has two joints. After it reaches its jumping destination, the roach then uses its shell to right itself so it’s ready to leap again.

Nerekhta Robot: Smart Military Robot
A battlefield is a terrible place for a person. War, as a profoundly human endeavor, requires humans, and there is no way around fighting most wars without, at some point, putting humans on the ground. In the future and, increasingly, the present, those humans will be accompanied by robots, often remotely guided machines carrying some share of the burden of the fight.

Amy Robot: Smart Service Robot
Amy Robot can understand speech and make conversation with people in noisy environment, recognize specific people and say hello to him/her, follow a person in front of her with command “Hello Amy, follow me” and move to a place autonomously by saying “Hello Amy, go to the kitchen with me” to her and more. She can perform a surprisingly wide variety of tasks.

Liam Robot: Smart Apple Robot
Liam Robot is a large-scale robot, with 29 freestanding robotic arms at various skill stations. But while most assembly-line robots help put together products you'll one day hold in your hands, Liam is hard at work disassembling your ruined, returned iPhones.

Roomba Robot: Smart Cleaner Robot
Roomba is a series of autonomous robotic vacuum cleaners sold by iRobot. Introduced in September 2002, Roomba features a set of sensors that enable it to perform its tasks. For instance, the Roomba is able to change direction upon encountering obstacles, to detect dirty spots on the floor, and to sense steep drops to keep it from falling down stairs.

Hull Bug Robot: Smart Underwater Robot
The Hull BUG has four wheels, and attaches itself to the underside of ships using a negative pressure device that creates a vortex between the BUG and the hull. Much like a robotic vacuum cleaner, lawnmower or floor cleaner, the idea is that once it’s put in place, it can set about getting the job done without any outside control.

Ripsaw Robot: Smart Military Robot
The Ripsaw Robot is a developmental unmanned light tank designed and built by Howe & Howe Technologies for evaluation by the United States Army. The Howe brothers started the Ripsaw as a small family project in 2000. They introduced it at a Dallas vehicle show in 2001, where it caught the interest of the U.S. Army. Later that year the U.S. Military ordered a prototype MS-1 to be made and shipped to Iraq.
