3D printing soft legs can help a robot walk across rough and rocky terrain

Technology 1 week ago TechCrunch 18
 A team of engineers at the University of California San Diego have applied the biologically-inspired principles of soft robotics in order to develop a robot capable of navigating uneven terrain like rocks and sand. The soft and pliable materials mean the robot’s four legs are capable of conforming to their surrounds, so its on-board sensors don’t need a precise picture of the… Read More
