Watch these tiny 3D printed quadruped robots pronk their way over rough terrain

Researchers from the University of Maryland have used 3D printing to develop tiny quadruped robots capable of navigating rough terrain. The 3D printed robots, weighing under 2 g and measuring just 20 mm long, can move with different gaits, including trotting, waddling, bounding, and pronking. Insects are given a hard time by humans. Capable of incredible feats of strength and movement, insects are still more likely to find themselves under a flyswatter than a microscope. That could all change soon, however, as more and more roboticists are starting to build tiny, insect-like robots which mimic the clever and unusual […]
