CMU, Berkeley researchers design robust legged robot system - This little robot can go almost anywhere. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science and the University of California, Berkeley, have designed a robotic system that enables a low-cost and relatively small legged robot to climb and descend stairs nearly its height; traverse rocky, slippery, uneven, steep and varied terrain; walk across gaps; scale rocks and curbs; and even operate in the dark.

Games can entertain. They can bring people together. They can transport players to new worlds, test skills and strategies, and encourage play. But games can also transform. They can teach, change people's minds, help them with difficult conversations and inspire action.

Astronomy - Nov 11

Carnegie Mellon University student Ali Shakir is working to correct an error in how cosmologists measure intrinsic galaxy alignments. When viewing faint galaxy images, researchers have to factor in distortions such as when a distribution of matter - like a cluster of galaxies - has a gravitational field that bends the light of a distant source as it travels toward an observer.
