'Flying fish’ drone actually explodes out of the water Drones that can both swim and fly are no longer in the distant future. Imperial College London's Aerial Robotics Lab built a concept for multimodal swimming robot it calls AquaMAV that can jump out of water. The scientists behind AquaMAV presented their findings in a paper published this week in Science Robotics. According to IEE Spectrum, the AquaMAV combines combustible power and water in order to propel itself. 

Along with North Reading, Amazon Robotics already has a small office in Westborough with a few dozen workers. They will move to the old AstraZeneca plant on Otis Street off Route 9, next year, with the full plant set to open after renovations in 2021 . “This will be a world-class facility where our teams

Opening in 2021 , the company plans to invest more than million in the new site to allow Amazon Robotics to continue to grow its engineering, manufacturing, support and test “This will be a world-class facility, where our teams can design, build, program, and ship our robots , all under the same roof.

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Amazon says it plans to open a $40 million robotics innovation hub west of Boston.

The technology giant said Wednesday the complex will open in 2021 in Westborough, Massachusetts. Amazon says the expansion will create about 200 tech and advanced manufacturing jobs.

Amazon says it has created more than 4,000 full-time jobs in Massachusetts and has invested over $3 billion in the state since 2011.

Tye Brady is Amazon Robotics' chief technologist. He says the new hub will be a place where robots are designed, built, programmed and shipped.

Amazon's robotics division has been focused on making warehouse robots that stack and move goods at its distribution centers.

Massachusetts has been the center for Amazon's robotics research since the company acquired North Reading-based Kiva Systems for $775 million in 2012.
