With the help of AI and a neural network, this wiggling robotic finger digs into substances such as sand to locate and identify buried objects. Robotic hands, fingers, grippers, and their various sensors are usually deployed to function in “free space” for many obvious reasons. But in the real world, it’s often necessary to poke and […]
On the ‘Tech of Sports’ podcast, Rick talks with Felix Breitschädel, PhD, Norwegian Olympic Sports Centre about how the Norwegian Ski Team is utilizing unique tech to give their skiers an edge on the slopes by arming them with detailed data, thanks to GelSight – whose handheld 3D measurement device the Norwegian ski team is […]
The Future of Everything covers the innovation and technology transforming the way we live, work and play, with monthly issues on health, money, cities and more. This month is Artificial Intelligence, online starting July 2 and in the paper on July 9. Even the smartest computers cannot fully understand the world without the ability to see, hear, smell, taste or touch. […]
GelSight’s Chief Product Officer and co-founder, Dr. Kimo Johnson, spoke with the team at Shot Peener Magazine about how our technology can help provide more accurate assessments of shot peening coverage, rate and other process parameters.

WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GelSight, a pioneer in industrial tactile imaging and sensing technology, today announced that experienced imaging technology executive Youssef Benmokhtar has joined the company as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Benmokhtar joins GelSight from enterprise augmented reality leader Magic Leap, where he spearheaded the company’s business development activities and formed major strategic partnerships with technology, […]
Over the years, robots have gotten quite good at identifying objects — as long as they’re out in the open. Discerning buried items in granular material like sand is a taller order. To do that, a robot would need fingers that were slender enough to penetrate the sand, mobile enough to wriggle free when sand grains jam, […]
A researcher from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has developed a robot that can search for objects buried beneath sand and other granular media. The so-called Digger Finger, which features a GelSight sensor — a vision-based tactile sensor — can reportedly penetrate granular media to locate concealed objects. According to the research, the prototype penetrates […]
A Liverpool Hope University student has found a revolutionary way to improve medical care using a simple silicone make-up sponge – bought from a high street chemist. Alexander Co Abad discovered the £1 beauty product could form the main component of a sensor designed to be as sensitive as human skin when it comes to […]
Both the government and private sector continue to work on building more functional robots to accomplish various tasks, especially ones that aren’t suited or safe for humans. For example, NASA’s Mars Perseverance Mission, which is fully robotic, is scheduled to make planetfall on Mars next week. In addition to the Pathfinder robot, which is pretty well-known […]
