MIT has developed a way to 3D print sheets of material that self-assemble when baked. With inspiration from Japanese origami, researchers have developed -- among other objects -- robots. Head researcher Daniela Rus is already looking for potential applications saying, "I want a robot that will play with my cat." Check out the full article at HNGN to learn more and watch a video of the assembly in action.
