3D-printed, remora-inspired robot can cling to shark skin underwater thanks to ultrastrong sucker

3D printing and robotics have been evolving in harmony over the last few years, as the improved design possibilities presented by the former have enabled the creation of all kinds of innovative robots for a broad range of applications, drawing inspiration from a variety of sources. The natural world is as valid a source of inspiration as any, and a recent project saw a 3D printed robotic version of a unique type of fish being developed, to hopefully contribute towards the study of marine life. It was a collaborative project between Beihang University, Harvard University, and Boston College. The […]
