A Frightful Career with Tom Savini
 
02:44
Before “The Walking Dead” and the plethora of zombie shows on television today, there was Tom Savini. The Carnegie Mellon University alumnus is an accomplished actor, stuntman and director, but he’s mostly made his mark in Hollywood with zombies and blood. Savini — the special effects genius behind such horror cult classics as “Friday the 13th,” “Dawn of the Dead,” “Creepshow” and “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2” — has influenced a generation of filmmakers and film fanatics engrossed in fear and gore. In fact, they’ve bestowed upon him some descriptive titles, including “The Godfather of Gore” and “The Sultan of Splatter.” For more, visit: http://cmtoday.cmu.edu/entertainment_artsculture/alumnus-tom-savini-has-turned-horror-into-a-frightful-career/

CMU Robotic Arm Inspires Disney's Baymax
 
03:16
An inflatable robotic arm made of a balloon-like material at Carnegie Mellon University is the inspiration behind the robot character Baymax in Disney's latest animated feature film "Big Hero 6." In the comedy-adventure, Baymax, a gentle robot designed to care for humans, is transformed into a warrior and joins a band of high-tech heroes. Mobile robots made from soft materials offer advantages over metal robots, including lower weight, lower cost and greater safety when operating near people. At CMU, researchers are proving that these soft robots can do real work while developing technologies, such as artificial muscles, touch sensors and pressure-sensitive skins, that will make them practical. Carnegie Mellon University's work in soft robotics is funded by NSF, DARPA, ONR, AFOSR, NASA and Siemens.
