This Amazing Mini Origami Robot Walks, Self-Folds, Swims And More

 

'MIT' and 'TU Munich' scientists have created the most awesome tiny robot which can climb, walk, swim, carry and even assemble itself! Science fiction has become science fact, and this little guy is just going to get better and better. Created from PVC and magnets, the little robot can be dissolved in acetone and is just 1.6cm on each side and weighs 0.31g. He even assembles and propels himself through a clever reaction between heat, magnets and a laser cut PVC sheet. 'An Untethered Miniature Origami Robot That Self-folds, Walks, Swims and Degrades' was unveiled at a recent 'IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation' in Seattle, USA. Take a look!
