Now, from the Boston Museum of Science, Si-tech Today, on NECN.

You've heard art imitating life, but how about technology imitating biology? Joining us now from the Museum of Science Boston is Casey Kute from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Hi, Casey.
Hi, how are you?
Good, good to have you with us. So, you're looking to biology to design robots, and what specifically have you come up with?
So, if you look at nature, you'll see really unique abilities. One of them is the gecko, which is a small lizard that's able to climb on smooth surfaces. So, we want to go and figure out how it is  doing that. And take that the same ability, and those principles, and use them on some of the robots that we have and one of them is Folbar, which I have here. And it actually uses a flat tacky elastomer which is our first step before beginning the synthetic gecko fibers.

And how does the gecko do what he does ?
So, the gecko has tiny hairs on the feet, and each one of those hairs can get really close contact with the wall. And the forces between the molecules, and both the fibers and the wall come together under what are called intermolecular forces, more specifically the Van der Waals Forces. And so if you get thousands of those tiny hairs really close to each other, you can actually get a significant amount of force.

And what do you use to make the robot mimic how the gecko moves?
So we use a polymer material and molded some of these fibers, put them on one of our robots called Wallbot and it actually can climb on really smooth surfaces. One of the problems that you have is that the adhesion between the fibers and the wall is really strong which is great for climbing. But when you want it to move, you've got to figure out the way to move it. So, we actually peel from the surface, and in the same way that the gecko peels its tones off.

And so we are looking at some videos here, this is Wallbot.
Yes, absolutely.
So it moves up the wall.
Yap, and so you'll see as the feet are coming off--it peels. This is slightly different from the gecko ,because the gecko actually has really soft toes and it peels back, and we are using more rigid surfaces. But it has the same principles behind all the biological things.

Pretty cool, what are some of the applications for this new technology?
So one of the things that we want to do is to take this really small robots and put them in such places where we could do surveilance and video monitoring. You can put different payloads into  sensors and temperature monitor and all kinds of these things and moves the sensors around, which is really unique expect.
All right they are there on display in the museum of science.
Yeah, they are. Come by and see them.
All right, Casey Kute. Thanks so much for joining us this morning.
Thanks for having me.
And you'll be sure to join us every Thursday morning at this time for Si-tech Today or log on the museum of science website mos.org.

And if you get thousands of those tiny hairs really close to each other, you can actually get a significant amount of force.

You've heard about imitated life, but how about technology imitating biology? Joining us now from Museum of Science Boston is Kathy Cue from Connell University in Pittsburgh. Hi, Kathy.

Hi, how are you?
Good. Good to have you with us. So you are looking to biology to design robots. And what's specifically you can come up with?
So, if you look at nature, you'll see really you need abilities, one of them is gecko, which is a small visitor that is able to climb on smooth surfaces. So we wanted to gonna figure out how it's doing that and take that same ability, and those principles and use them on some of robots that we have. And one of them is Forbot which I have here. And it actually use a flat tacky // which is our first step before being // synthetic--gecko fibras.  

And how does the gecko do what he does?
So the gecko has tiny heels on the feet. And each one of those heels can get very close contact with the wall. And the forces between the molecules, the fibras and the wall come together. And what called intimate forces more specifically the vanderwall forces. And if you get thousands of those tiny little heels really close to each other, you can actually get significant amount of force.

And then what to use to make the robot mimic how the gecko moves?
So we use a poler mimic tool and moded some of the fibras. Put them on our robots called Wallbot and it actually conquire really smooth sureface.One of the problems that you have is that the higent between fibras and walls is really strong which is great for requiring. But when you want to move you gonna figure out the way to move it. So we actually peel it from the surface and the same way that the gecko peels its toes off.

And so we looking at the video here, this is Wallbot?
Yes, absolutely.
So it moves up the wall.
Yeah, so you see as the feet coming off, it peels. This is by the way we get from gecko. Because the gecko has really soft toes and peels back, and when using more // surfaces. But it has the same principles behind the biological things.

Pretty cool. What are some of the applications for this new technology?
So one of the things we are wanting to do is taking really small robots and putting them in some places so we could do surveillance and video monitoring. You can put different pallows and do sensors and temperature monitoring, and all kinds of the things. Move the settings around which you really need gas backed.

Already. And there is the play and the museum of science?
Yeah. May I come by to see you?
All right. Kathy Cue, thanks so much joining us this morning.

You’ve heard about imitating life, but how about technology imitating biology? Joining us now from Museum of Science Boston is Casey Kute from Carnegie Mellon University in Piz burg.

-Hi, Casey.
-Hi, how are you?
-Good, good to have you with us. So you are looking to biology to design robots, and what’s specifically of your comeup with?

-If you look at the nature, you’ll see really unique abilities, one of them is gecko which is a small lizer that’s able to climb on smooth surfaces. So we want to go and figure out how is it doing that and take that same ability and those principles and use them on some of the robots we have. And one of them is Fober which I have here. And actually it uses a flag tacular last summer, which was our first step before beginning the s**, gecko fibers.

-And how does the gecko do what it does?
-So the gecko has tiny hairs on the feet and each one of those hairs can get really close contact with the wall. And the forces between the molicurs and both the fibers and the wall come together and what it called intimu?? forces, more specifically, the vendor wall’s forces. And if you get thousands of those tiny little hairs really close to each other, you can actually get the significant among the force.

-And what do you use to make the robot mimic how the gecko moves?
-So we use a p*** and molded some of these fibers, put them on one of our robots called wallbot and it actually can climb on really smooth surfaces. One of the problems that you have is that the ** between the fibers and ** is really strong which is great for climbing. When you want to move, you gotta a figure out the way to move it. So we actually peel from the surface and in the same way that the gecko peels its toes off.

-And so we are looking at some video here, this is wallbot.
-Yes, absolutely.
-So, it moves up the wall.
-Yeah, and so you see it as the f** coming off, it peels. This is slightly different from the gecko. Because the gecko actually is really soft at peels back and when we’re using more r** surface. But it tests same principles behind all the biological things.

-Pretty cool. What are some of the applications for this new technology?

-So one of those things we’ve wanted to do is take these really small robots and put them in so places we could do civilians and video monitory, you could put different pillows, you do sens** and temperature monitory and all kinds of things that move the se** around. It’s just really you expect.

-All ready and there are on display at the Museum of Science.
-Yep, they are. Come by and see them.
-All right, Casey Kute, thanks so much for joining us this morning.

So if you look at nature, you will see very unique abilities, one of them is gecko, which is a small wizzar that's able to climb on smooth surface. So we want to go and figure out how is it doing that and take that same ability and those princples and use them on some of the robot that we have. And one of them is fobal? which I have here. And it actually uses a flat tacl?? astomphere, which is our first step before begging the ** gecko firbes.
And how does the gecko do what it does?
So the gecko has tiny hair on the feet and one of those hair can get really close contact with the wall. And the force between the * and the firber and the wall come together and what it's called ** forces, more pecific, the vendor wall forces. And so if you get thousand of those tiny little hair really close to each other, you can get a significant amount of force.
And then what did you use to make the roboot * how the gecko moves?
So we use a * materials and modi some of this firbers, putting on one of our rorbots called Wallbots and it actually can climb on ** surface. One of the problems that you have is the tesion between the firber and the wall is really strong which is great for climbing but when you want to move, you gotta firgure out a way to move it. So we actually peel from the surface the same that gecko peels its toes off.
And so we are looking at some video here. This is wallbot?. Yes, absolutely. So it moves up the wall??
And you will see as the ther?? coming off, it peels. This is very different from the gecko, becasue the gecko actually really soft toes and it peels back and we are using more religouse surface, but it has the same princples behind all the biological things.
Pretty cool. What are some of the applications for this technology??
So one of those things we wanna do is small robots and put them into place where we could do survelliance and video monitoring. You can put different play roles and and do sensors and temperiature monitoring and all kinds of different things and move this sensors around which is a unique aspect.
All righ. on display at the museume of sicience.
Yeah, they are. Come by and see them.
Casey Kute, thank you so much for joining us this morning. Thanks for having me.
And you will be sure to join us every Thursday morning at this time for sic tech today. Or log on the musesum of sicienc website. MOS.org

Now, from the Boston Museum of Science, Si-tech Today, on NECN.

You've heard art imitating life, but how about technology imitating biology? Joining us now from the Museum of Science Boston is Casey Kute from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Hi, Casey.
Hi, how are you?
Good, good to have you with us. So, you're looking to biology to design robots, and what specifically have you come up with?
So, if you look at nature, you'll see really unique abilities. One of them is the gecko, which is a small lizard that's able to climb on smooth surfaces. So, we want to go and figure out how it is  doing that. And take that the same ability, and those principles, and use them on some of the robots that we have and one of them is Folbar, which I have here. And it actually uses a flat tacky elastomer which is our first step before beginning the synthetic gecko fibers.

And how does the gecko do what he does ?
So, the gecko has tiny hairs on the feet, and each one of those hairs can get really close contact with the wall. And the forces between the molecules, and both the fibers and the wall come together under what are called intermolecular forces, more specifically the Van der Waals Forces. And so if you get thousands of those tiny hairs really close to each other, you can actually get a significant amount of force.

And what do you use to make the robot mimic how the gecko moves?
So we use a polymer material and molded some of these fibers, put them on one of our robots called Wallbot and it actually can climb on really smooth surfaces. One of the problems that you have is that the adhesion between the fibers and the wall is really strong which is great for climbing. But when you want it to move, you've got to figure out the way to move it. So, we actually peel from the surface, and in the same way that the gecko peels its toes off.

And so we are looking at some videos here, this is Wallbot.
Yes, absolutely.
So it moves up the wall.
Yap, and so you'll see as the feet are coming off--it peels. This is slightly different from the gecko ,because the gecko actually has really soft toes and it peels back, and we are using more rigid surfaces. But it has the same principles behind all the biological things.

Pretty cool, what are some of the applications for this new technology?
So one of the things that we want to do is to take this really small robots and put them in such places where we could do surveilance and video monitoring. You can put different payloads into  sensors and temperature monitoring and all kinds of these things and moves the sensors around, which is really unique aspect.
All right they are there on display in the museum of science.
Yeah, they are. Come by and see them.
All right, Casey Kute. Thanks so much for joining us this morning.
Thanks for having me.
And you'll be sure to join us every Thursday morning at this time for Si-tech Today or log on the museum of science website mos.org.
