BRINGING BIOLOGY AND ROBOTICS
By Nic Conroy and Brian Johnson
Field covering cybernetics, bionics, genetic
engineering, and robotics.
Research into the use of various forms of
robotics to create replace limbs, lifelike
robots, and possibly enhance the human
“Animal Like” robots are playing a huge role in
combining the fields of biology and engineering.
There are several uses for bio
*Tactical Military Uses.
* Disabled People.
*Advancements in the fields of Biology,
Engineering, Computer Sciences, and
many other science fields.
A Look At The Current State
Sensors hooked to the
motor cortex of the
brain enable monkeys to
operate the robotic arm
in the same manor as
their biological arm
Currently BCI or Brain Computer
Interface allows the use of
computers by the physically
handicap by taking signals
directly from the brain.
