Programming robots is becoming easier every year. Plenty of robot manufacturers are investing in software development to allow intuitive control of their products. Purdue University researchers have developed an augmented reality app that lets users visually program robots to perform real-world tasks.

Anyone Can Train Their "Internet of Things"

V.Ra, developed by Karthik Ramani’s C Design Lab, is a framework that relies on a smartphone app to let users record a motion path and task list for home and industrial robots. After programming, the user simply has to attach the phone to the dock on the robot. The dock connects to the robot’s controls and motor wirelessly while the phone works as the eyes and brains for it.
