Scientists Create Remote Control Robo-roach for Rescue Operations
SAN DIEGO (ksl.com) — Researchers and students from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, under the leadership of Alper Bozkurt, have been working on making tiny robots that can easily be maneuvered to creep, leap and crawl in rough, out of the way, inconspicuous spaces. The tiny robots needed to be about the size of a quarter dollar coin.
Bozkurt asked why not use cockroaches instead of robots, it’s been done before. Who knew science could be this much fun?
