When high thrust forces are produced, the vehicle transitions into the unfolded mode. Late last year, we wrote about a foldable drone from Davide Scaramuzza’s lab at the University of Zurich that could change its

Robots have traditionally been roughly humanoid in form, which has some obvious advantages, in that the robots are better able to integrate into a human-designed environment. But there are lots of environments that aren’t human designed, and researchers have been experimenting with robotic forms that look more like insects or fish. Now, a team of Swiss researchers has produced a robot that looks like nothing more than a walking circuit board. Despite its small size, though, the robot
