Wireless magnetic fields and actuator ‘muscles’ allow folding robots to move without batteries

 

Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard

Folding robots based on origami have emerged as an exciting new frontier of robotic design, but generally require on board batteries or a wired connection to a power source, limiting their functionality. Scientist have now created battery-free folding robots that are capable of complex, repeatable movements powered and controlled through a wireless magnetic field.
