By Philip Spagnoli Stoten Founder of SCOOP

Now in a regular Friday spot, this is the Reading Room, a weekly roundup of what we’ve been reading, watching and listening to this week. You can see these more regularly if you follow me on LinkedIn or Twitter.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Robot brains are getting smarter and smarter, but their bodies are often still clunky and unwieldy. Mechanical engineer Christoph Keplinger is designing a new generation of soft, agile robot inspired by a masterpiece of evolution: biological muscle. See these “artificial muscles” expand and contract like the real thing and reach superhuman speeds, and learn how they could power prosthetics that are stronger and more efficient than human limbs. Check out this TED Talk “The artificial muscles that will power robots of the future

PODCAST OF THE WEEK:Check out the Wall Street Journal’s Tech New Briefing. Wall Street Journal reporters join Tanya Bustos to cover leading companies, new gadgets, consumer trends and cyber issues. From San Francisco to New York to the hottest conferences, WSJ journalists help you stay plugged in.
