$10 million project aims to create ‘printable robots’.

An MIT project aiming to reinvent how robots are designed has received a $10 million grant from the US National Science Foundation.

"This research envisions a whole new way of thinking about the design and manufacturing of robots, and could have a profound impact on society," MIT professor Daniela Rus, leader of the project, said in a statement, adding that the project could help to “democratize access to robots.”

The team has already built several prototypes as shown in the video, including a robotic ‘insect’, a robotic fish, and a gripper to pick them up.
