We’ve seen numerous choices for controlling real worms, but never a worm robot, so far. Enter Meshworm, the most recent creation from researchers at MIT, Harvard University and Seoul National University.
The bot is manufactured out of “artificial muscle” made up of a flexible mesh tube segmented by loops of nickel / titanium wire. The wire contracts and squeezes the tube when heated with a flowing current, but cut the strength also it returns in shape, creating propulsion in the same way to its living kin.
Taking traditional moving parts out from the equation also can make it pretty hardy, as proven by extensive testing (read: hitting it having a hammer). DARPA is famous to get its fingers in most types of strange pies, and in addition it supported this project.
