MIT Team 3D Prints Robot That Walks Straight Out Of The 3D Printer

The researchers at the MIT always impress the world with their new achievements with all sorts of manufacturing techniques. Often the researchers take advantage of the possibilities of 3D printing.

This time the team consisting of Daniela Rus, Robert MacCurdy, Robert Katzchmann and Youbin Kim used the multimaterial capabilities of PolyJet 3D printing to create Printable Hydraulic Robots.

To make a robot that needs nearly no post processing the team came up with the idea to create hydraulic pumps with flexible material and combine that with the case built with rigid materials. With this combination the team was able to build things like grippers, pumps and much more.

You can see the functioning robot in the video below:
