Pneuborn Robot: Smart Baby Robot

Pneuborn Robot can teach itself to crawl, sit, and stand using pattern generators and learning algorithms. The target tasks of the robot are basic locomotion like rolling over and crawling, which are acquired at the age of around seven months. The skeletal structure, muscle alignment, and range of motion are designed on the basis of functional anatomy, biomechanics, and observation of real human babies.

DelFly Nimble Robot: Smart Insect Robot

DelFly Nimble Robot is a super agile robot with a quad-wing flapping system, and it’s capable of flying just as nimbly as a real winged insect. Using its four wings, the DelFly can control three axes of flight, and it goes left or right by changing the way each one of its wings flap. It’s eerily similar to a real insect. Currently, the DelFly can fly around for more than five minutes on a full battery with a range of more than 1 kilometer (0.62 miles).

TechJect Robot: Smart Spy Robot

TechJect Robot may not be ready just yet, but you can back this project at Indiegogo for just $99 to get your very own micro UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle). If you're willing to chuck in another $20, you'll be able to get a noiseless version. The basic model weighs in at just less than an ounce and can hover or flit around like a bird with its two pairs of wings. TechJect also intends to sell different types of wings that will change how the unit performs.
