RoboBees Bring Artisanship To Mass Production
Harvard graduate students produce a swarm of bionic robots with a method based on pop-up books
By RBR Staff


LIVE SCIENCE—A new technique inspired by elegant pop-up books and origami will soon allow clones of robotic insects to be mass-produced by the sheet.

Devised by engineers at Harvard University, the ingenious layering and folding process enables the rapid fabrication of not just microrobots, but a broad range of electromechanical devices. The new technique replaces a tedious and time-consuming manual process for creating such devices.


Why RoboBees?

Coordinated agile robotic insects can be used for a variety of purposes including:

  • autonomously pollinating a…
