Technology is the application of scientific knowledge to the interests of humans. Science and technology helps to improve our lives in many ways. Building houses, paving roads, growing crops and curing illness, all depend on technology.
Humans use technology to travel, to communicate, to learn, to do business and to live in comfort. However, technology has also caused us concerns. ... Technology impacts the environment, people and the society as a whole. The way we use technology determines if its impacts are positive to the society or negative.
The sophisticated Einstein robot has 31 artificial muscles, all individually programmed to enable it to make facial expressions. The robot is now able to learn expressions on its own, and it recently taught itself to smile and frown.

Professor Gil Weinberg of Georgia Tech has created a robot that can be attached to amputees. His “robotic drumming prosthesis” has motors that power two drumsticks. The first stick is controlled both by the musician’s arms and electronically using EMG muscle sensors. The other stick “listens” to the music and improvises.

Our speed robot was a robostar at the regional at RAF Scampton, winning us the trophy for fastest robot.
At the regional competition at RAF Scampton our light intensity programming collect the engines wouldn't work because of the different light levels in the plane hangar compared with school. We managed to find these values during lunch and alter our program so it worked in our second attempt.
We got our robot to sing our team song and display our logo. What a robostar!Watch the video
