Creepy Crawly Robot Slug Thing!

Researchers at Harvard have made amazing progress in the field of soft robotics. Their creepy crawling creation is untethered and self-containted, carrying its processors, control system and batteries on its back. The robot’s body is made of highly durable silicone, with a kevlar bottom layer. The limbs can be run over by a car without issue. This is big step in robotics modeled by biology, and I look forward to seeing how this technology develops. Check out the video below. ¬†For more information, refer to this Harvard Gazette article, or their submission to the research journal Soft Robotics.
