Great slide show.  I wish there was video here too.  Some of these must be very elegant in action.  Thanks for the slide show.

Biomimicry in design and engineering has been around forever and proves to lead to some of the most innovative and evenually mundane products.  We all know about velcro.  I like to imagine that the wheel was invented after observing a pill bug (armadilldiidae).

Creepy, crawly with potential

I find the whole practice of biomimicky fascinating and these bug/worm robots really are a testament to how taking a page from nature can really get the innovation juices flowing. I noticed that most of these robot projects hail from universities. Makes sense to get student brain power in the mix. I'm wondering, though, how many of these are purely research efforts vs. potential for commercialized products.
