MIT Team Unveils Origami Robot for Wound Repair
The Ingestible Origami Robot is both highly creative and highly practical in its design, and it addresses a clinical need in a very elegant way. One of the most convincing applications of origami robots on the market, the hope of the robot is that it will eventually be able to patch internal wounds and possible also deliver medicine.... The forces applied to the robot are principally rotational. A quick rotation will make it spin in place, but a slower rotation will cause it to pivot around one of its fixed feet. In the researchers’ experiments, the robot uses the same magnet to pick up the button battery. Porcine precedents. The researchers tested about a dozen different possibilities for the structural material before
How do you make an origami robot use a cardboard?
(Inside Science) -- When unadorned, the robot is but a tiny, tumbling, magnetic cube. But wrap it in a self-folding polymer and Mylar sheet, and it transforms. Donning this origami exoskeleton, the 1/8-inch robot becomes bigger and more powerful, now smoothly scooting around. Layering on another... Robotic arms like the UR10 I mentioned earlier already stop if they make contact with a human, and expect the softies to do the same. So the soft robots of the near future will combine brawn and
Rise of the Self-Folding Robot With Origami
Not everyone has the time or money to build their own robot from scratch, which is why Ankur Mehta hopes to make robotics a little more accessible to the public by taking a cue from the Japanese... The problem with the world today is there simply aren’t enough robots that can be dropped into an envelope and mailed, then folded like origami into a insect-like shape.
Centimeter-long origami robot MIT News
9/08/2014 · Origami: It's not just art anymore. Engineers are harnessing the Japanese art of paper-folding to build in smarter, more efficient ways. A team of researchers designed a self-folding robot that... Folding origami is easily described, but impossible to illustrate here. The links are to some interesting origami sites..

How To Make An Origami Robot
Heat is then applied to cause the exoskeleton to fold around the robot in a motion akin to a piece of origami assembling itself. The folds are created by lines cut into the sheet of plastic, with
- At the recent International Conference on Robotics and Automation, MIT researchers presented a printable origami robot that folds itself up from a flat sheet of plastic when heated and measures about a centimeter from front to back.

- Ingestible origami robot In experiments involving a simulation of the human esophagus and stomach, researchers at MIT, the University of Sheffield, and the Tokyo Institute of Technology have demonstrated a tiny origami robot that can unfold itself from a swallowed capsule and, steered by external magnetic fields, crawl across the stomach wall to remove a swallowed button battery or patch a wound.
