July 20, 2015
Two engineers have developed the first 3D-printed robot with a mix of solid and soft materials that can jump similarly to a human, the result of research they think will have applications for disaster recovery and future space missions.
The robot, which combines a rigid core and soft exterior, can perform more than 30 untethered jumps and uses a combination of butane and oxygen for power.
