Microswimmer robot chains can decouple and reconnect in a magnetic field
Researchers have successfully pulled off a feat that both sci-fi fans and Michael Phelps could appreciate. Using a rotating magnetic field they show how multiple chains of microscopic magnetic bead-based robots can link up to reach impressive speeds swimming through in a microfluidic (...)

Artificial muscle for soft robotics: Low voltage, high hopes
A dielectric elastomer with a broad range of motion that requires relatively low voltage and no rigid components has now been created by scientists. This type of actuator could be used in everything from wearable devices to soft grippers, laparoscopic surgical tools, entirely soft robots or (...)

Minimalist swimming microrobots
When scaling down robots to the micrometer scale for tiny tasks such as incising tissue and puncturing retinal veins, minimalism is key. To make smaller, simpler microrobots, researchers have developed a fabrication method which utilizes the minimum geometric requirements for fluid motion -- (...)
