This week on Engineering Update, brought to you by Mouser Electronics:

  • Steerable paper planes: A robotics team from the University of Queensland has created two versions of a single-use UAV. The unmanned aerial vehicles, which are usually associated with clandestine military operations, are both designed to relay environmental information.
  • An educational robotic fish: The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology recently developed a new fish with the sole purpose of educating 10 to 18 year olds about technology and biology.
  • A cursive-critiquing robotic pen: The Lernstift pen features built-in hand recognizing technology and software that will vibrate to alert the writer of any spelling errors.
