A team of researchers have achieved a first in the world of modular robotics by developing an origami robot that can change shape, move around, and interact with objects and people. The robots were designed in part to be used in spacecraft, which don’t have the room to store different robots for each individual task that needs to be carried out.
The Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) research team hopes that Mori3 robots will be used for communication purposes and external repairs on the spacecraft of the future.
