Today it costs a lot of money to build a robot, but this method is fast, cheap and specialized, Rus said.
And eventually the technology could produce more complex machines.
The robots themselves start out a bit smaller than a normal sheet Air Max 95 Db
These robots aren quite Transformers of movie and cartoon fame. Once they assemble themselves automatically with heat activated hinges that allow the folding, there are no more changes, Rus and Felton said.
Robotics pioneer Rodney Brooks, an MIT emeritus professor who wasn part of the research, said this could be close to other momentous changes in technology, such as the first 3 D printers or even 1947 ENIAC early computer.
WASHINGTON In what may be the birth of cheap, easy to make robots, researchers have created complex machines that transform themselves from little more than a sheet of paper and plastic into walking automatons.
Cheap and fast robots can now assemble themselves from sheet of paper
of paper. Off the shelf batteries and motors are embedded at a cost of about $80. Altogether, the early machines researchers made, along with the equipment to build them, cost less than $1,000 apiece, Felton said.
principle it will be possible to say, want a robot to play chess with me, and generate a machine that has the computational abilities to play chess with you, Rus said.
are made out of hobby shop materials that cost about $100. After the installation of tiny batteries and motors, a paper robot rises on four stumpy legs and starts scooting in a herky jerky manner. It transforms from flat paper to jitterbugging four legged robot in just four minutes.
more people will join in working on these techniques, each making incremental progress and decades from now we wonder why it took so long to get where we then be with it, Brooks said in an email.
This small lightweight type of robot could explore outer space and other dangerous environments, and get into cramped places for search and rescue missions, researchers said. But that just the start of what may be a long envisioned robotic revolution. Kinkos is an office supply store chain.
He said the way heating activates the hinges was inspired by the children toy line Shrinky Dinks, which shrivel and fold when put in the oven.
The robots, which the researchers did not name, are about 6 inches (15 centimetres) long, 6 inches (15 centimetres) wide, and about 2 inches (5 centimetres) tall. They weigh less than 3 ounces. (85 grams) They move about 2 inches (5 centimetres) Nike Air Max 95 All Black On Feet per second. But they can be made bigger or smaller, with some limitations, Felton said.
is a simple, flexible and rapid design process and a step toward the dream of realizing the vision of 24 hour robot manufacturing, Rus said.
