A new study has revealed new algorithms and electronic components could enable printable robots that self-assemble when heated.


The researchers have given a promise of printable robotic components that automatically fold into prescribed three-dimensional configurations on heating.

The printable robots which can be assembled from parts produced by 3-D printers have long been a topic of research in the lab of Daniela Rus, the Andrew and Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT.
