How to make electrical muscle stimulation feel natural to virtual reality users
If there's one familiar sound whenever a volunteer tries out an interactive device that uses electrical muscle stimulation, it is probably laughter. Even for experienced users of the technology, the sensation of a machine controlling your body feels unnatural and strange. Something about the experience disrupts people's sense of agency-the feeling of being in control of one's actions-which could interfere with the technology's potential to improve learning and make virtual reality more realistic.

A toolbox for building robots aware of their surroundings
When companies use robots to produce goods, they generally have to position their automatic helpers in safety cages to reduce the risk of injury to people working nearby. A new system could soon free the robots from their cages and thus transform standard practices in the world of automation: Prof. Matthias Althoff has developed a toolbox principle for the simple assembly of safe robots using various components.
