Rather than using the human hand as a model for robotic hands, Prof. Rob Howe takes a much simpler approach: one motor, three fingers.

A live stream of the CS50 hackathon, experimental!
Pull an all-nighter with us! The #CS50 Hackathon will be live-streamed tonight from 8pm to 4am
Airmail, to your door? Professor Rob Wood, who builds robotic insects here at SEAS, offers his take on Amazon’s idea…
Among his many accomplishments, Prof. Tarokh is famous for inventing space-time codes, which improved wireless communications worldwide.
What if the world’s most accomplished engineers and applied scientists tackled the world’s most intractable challenges? At Harvard SEAS, all it takes is a question.
Congratulations to Aaron Perez ‘15, Alydaar Rangwala ‘15, Nikhil Mehandru ’15, and Brandon Sim ‘15, whose invention—a low-cost chemotherapy patch—has been named a finalist in the 2013 Collegiate Inventors Competition!
UPDATE: They won second place!
Materials scientists at Harvard SEAS have created a “synaptic transistor” that learns as it computes.
Exploiting unusual properties in modern materials, the synaptic transistor could mark the beginning of a new kind of artificial intelligence: one embedded not in smart algorithms but in the very architecture of a computer.
Kathy Ku ‘13 and about a dozen of her Harvard classmates have founded a non-profit called SPOUTS of Water that will supply affordable water filters to households across Uganda.
SEAS cultivates leaders with the skills and passion to change the world. Find out how we’re engineering a better life.
Seen through a microscope, the mouth of a tick offers fodder for nightmares. For Harvard professor L. Mahadevan, it also offers a great subject for mathematical and physical study.
Just in time for Halloween.
