Congratulations to graduating senior Ella Frigyik, Gonzalo Giribet Lab, awarded the Hoopes Prizefor her senior thesis, “Phylogeographic investigation into the New Zealand harvestman genus Algidia (Arachnida: Opiliones: Triaenonychidae)”.
L. Mahadevan teamed with MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory to develop a hair-brushing robot. The robotic arm has a sensorized soft brush, camera with force feedback, and closed-loop control.
The robot, which can identify different hair types and groom accordingly, could be an assest in assistive-care settings. MIT News shares a video of the robot in action.
