Smart Friday with RobotLAB- Robotic Arms and Assembly Lines!


A robotic arm, sometimes referred to as an industrial robot, is often described as a ‘mechanical’ arm. It is a device that operates in a similar way to a human arm, with a number of joints that either move along an axis or can rotate in certain directions. In fact, some robotic arms are anthropomorphic and try and imitate the exact movements of human arms.

Smart Friday with RobotLAB- The Geometry of Snowflakes

Happy Holidays SF

It's the most beautiful time of the year and this Smart Friday is a Happy Holidays Season Edition! Let's talk about ... The Geometry of Snowflakes!


As snowflakes gently meander past your living room window this winter, take a break from your hot cocoa and consider nature’s ice-cold architecture. When water molecules chill down, they assemble into a myriad of spectacular shapes from simple hexagons to star-shaped dendrites. Inspect these frozen fractals and you’ll find a recurring theme: the number six. Six sides, six edges, six branches — ice crystals seem six obsessed.

Smart Friday with RobotLAB -Design Thinking 5 Stage Process

What is Design Thinking?

Design Thinking is a method designers use in ideation and development, that also has applications elsewhere. The method describes a human-centered, iterative design process consisting of 5 steps—Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test. Design thinking is useful in tackling problems that are ill-defined or unknown.

Smart Friday with RobotLAB - Light: Wave-particle duality

Wave–particle duality is the concept in quantum mechanics that every particle or quantic entity may be partly described in terms not only of particles, but also of waves. It expresses the inability of the classical concepts "particle" or "wave" to fully describe the behavior of quantum-scale objects. As Albert Einstein wrote. 

One of the most confusing concepts in physics, wave-particle duality is unlike anything we see in the ordinary world.


Thomas Young's sketch of two-slit diffraction of waves, 1803

Light is a wave. This fact is something that most people are familiar with and it’s been known since the experiments carried out by the English polymath Thomas Young in the early 1800s

He calculated that oscillating electric and magnetic fields would propagate through space with the speed of light, and that therefore light itself was an example of electromagnetic radiation.
