用凯夫拉做的软骨能帮你更好地从关节伤病中恢复

强度堪比实物。<p>一般来说,要从膝盖伤病或其它关节损伤中完全恢复是件很不容易的事,因为目前还没有出现能像真的软骨一样耐用的人造替代品。不过最近密歇根大学研究者们的成果,让人看到了一些希望。他们开发出了一种基于凯夫拉材料的水凝胶,可以起到类似人体软骨的效果。它是将凯夫拉纳米纤维和聚乙烯醇融合在一起,你不动的时候水凝胶就会吸水(跟真的软骨一样),而到了高活动强度时它则会变得非常强韧。<p>实际上,要达到人体需要的强健程度和基本功能性,并不需要很多这样的水凝胶「软骨」。在其含水量达到 92% 的时候,强度便可与真正的软骨媲美。含量降低到 70% 的话,就差不多是橡胶的感觉。过去一些类似的人造产品,比较大的一个 …

丰田的 T-HR3 机器人能模仿你的手、臂、腿部动作

基于 VR 头盔和力反馈系统来实现。<p>说起车厂做的机器人,许多人可能第一时间会想到本田家的 ASIMO。但实际上,同为日本巨头的丰田也已在人形机器助手的领域中耕耘了多年,时至今日其产品其实已经更新到了第三代。不久前亮相的 THR-3 在前代的技术上又有所加强,它可由人通过 Master Maneuvering System 力反馈系统来测试特定的关节及动作。在使用时测试者必须要戴上头戴式设备(丰田选择了 HTC Vive)和「数据手套」,再加上扭矩随动设备的配合,就可以「即时操纵」机器人来精准模仿测试者的动作和力度了。<p>Gallery: Toyota T-HR3 | 5 Photos<p>gallery …
