An example of the new folding microbots developed at the University of Michigan

Robotics researchers often turn to the Japanese paper folding art of origami for inspiration, and with some very impressive results. Scientists working in the field at the University of Michigan have now taken this approach to produce what they say are first-of-a-kind machines, which can fold into different shapes to take on different tasks through the application of heat.
