Cheetah-Cub, designed in Switzerland, the robot cat

Scientists from the laboratory biorobotics Federal Polytechnic School (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland built a four-legged walking robot that mimics the movement of walking cats. About bot says in a press release EPFL.   Any of the four limbs bot has been called Cheetah-Cub («cheetah cub»), consists of 3 sections, connected by springs, and the structure resembles a cat’s paw.   Limbs are driven motors. «Head» bot not, and the place of the «tail» is the wire.   Pluses bot — light weight (about a kilogram), the ability to move over uneven surfaces, and the highest rate.   Cheetah-Cub —

The regeneration of limbs for people on the basis of salamanders

Australian scientists determined how tailed amphibians, including salamanders grow their new body parts — A key role in this process is played by their immune system.

Scientists have studied the order of tailed amphibians Newt — axolotl (with Aztec — water toy) Mexican ambistomy (Ambystoma mexicanum), which are often referred to as "Mexican walking around the fish" ("Mexican Walking Fish"). These amphibians are interested researchers with unique characteristics: they can regenerate their limbs, tail, jaw, retina and heart.

Dr. Godwin (Dr Godwin), together with colleagues Nadia Rosenthal (Nadia Rosenthal) and
