Doctor Otto Octavius, better known as doctor octopus, He is one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous foes. This scientist has a pectoral harness and limbs as a result of an accident, with which he acquired his main specialty: look like an octopus
was embodied in the cinema Alfred Molina, In both Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021).
Now your tools have come true. A group of Japanese researchers created robotic arms that follow the style of Doctor Octopus, called Jijai Arms, like company.
These flexible prostheses can be attached, disconnected and changed to adapt them to any type of work. to interact with robots or artificial intelligence, According to Japanese company
“Half a century after the concept of the cyborg was introduced, jizzai-bodies (digital cyborgs), enabled by the proliferation of wearable robotics, are the focus of much research,” he explains. “Jijai Arms is a system of extraterrestrial robotic limbs Consisting of a portable base unit with six terminals and detachable robotic arms.
Doctor Octopus’s tools for social interaction with robots
According to Jijai Arms, The system was designed to allow social interaction between multiple users, such as a hand swap, and to explore possible interactions with robots in a robotic society!
However, also pointed David Hernandez from Computer Today, Invention may have greater impact on improving quality of life people with disabilities. At the moment this topic has not been touched by Japanese engineers.
The design was done by the researchers University of Tokyo: Nahoko Yamamura, Daisuke Uryu, Mitsuru Muramatsu, Yusuke Kamiyama, Makoto Sakamoto and Shunji Yamanaka.
Their study was published in 2023 in the specialized journal ACM CHI. it is called Social Digital Cyborgs: The Collaborative Design Process of Jijai Arms.
