Developers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have created a micro-robot that can transform and change functions from rolling and reeling, pushing to flying.

That particular robot, called the Primer, is made from stretched plastic polymers. It can change shape as the temperature rises and is controlled by magnets.

Initially, each Primer was an exoskeleton (biological robot) in the form of a plastic sheet. But when combined with a magnetic controller, the exoskeleton can transform into many other polymorphs, such as a drum, a small boat, or even a roller coaster.

The plastic sheets are designed on computers, using the art of origami paper folding to ensure accuracy when starting to transform. Each plate is designed for a specific purpose.

Currently, Primer cannot operate by itself. The researchers still have to remote control so they can move to the required locations.

In the initial test, Primer took up to three minutes to shape the boat moving underwater.

In the future, Primer continues to be improved to improve the speed of movement, the ability to carry, push objects, automate, and can use many shapes at the same time in specific tasks.

The research on Primer has been published in Science Robotics recently.

  1. Hello, it’s Eduard here!
    I work as a professional an essay writer and have created this content with the intent of changing your life for the better. I started honing my writing skills in my school years. I learned that my fellow students needed writing help—and they were willing to pay for it. The money was enough to help pay my tuition for my remaining semesters of college.
    Ever since school, I have continued to work as an academic writer. I was hired by a writing company based in the United Kingdom. Since then, the essays that I have written have been sold around Europe and the United States.
    In my line of work, I have become accustomed to hearing, “Eduard Jaramillo, can you help me meet my writing assignment deadline?” I know that I can provide this service.
