Watch These Tiny Robots Move a 2 Ton Car
Researchers at Stanford University have taken inspiration from ants and geckos to create tiny robots that can move thousands of times their weight. Through the modification of micro-robots currently on the market, the team was able to do some pretty incredible research into how tiny things move huge objects first reported on by the New York Times. The micro-robots can move 2000 times their own weight, but through the use of teamwork, this ability is increased. Check out the video below to see just what the robots are capable of!
A unique adhesive was developed to resemble the functionality of gecko’s feet which was then applied to the varying bases of each robot.
