Meet the Robots of AAAS

Science, February 2014

Robots are taking over Chicago. Experts showed off three animal-inspired robots today at the annual meeting of AAAS, which publishes Science. The robots are designed to gallop, navigate, and swim like their real-world cheetah, ant, and fish counterparts. The mechanical trio’s novel movement could help future robots trek across the rocky terrain of other planets and plunge into the dark depths of the ocean.
