Robot folds itself up and walks away: Demonstrates potential for sophisticated machines that build themselves

7 agosto 2014

A team of engineers used little more than paper and Shrinky dinks — the classic children’s toy that shrinks when heated — to build a robot that assembles itself into a complex shape in four minutes flat, and crawls away without any human intervention. The advance demonstrates the potential to quickly and cheaply build sophisticated machines that interact with the environment, and to automate much of the design and assembly process.
