Magnetic 3-D-Printed Structures Crawl, Roll, Jump, and Play Catch, Technique Could be used for Remotely Controlled Biomedical Devices.

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/14/2018 08:44 AM
Cambridge, MA...MIT engineers have created soft, 3-D-printed structures whose movements can be controlled with a wave of a magnet, much like marionettes without the strings. The menagerie of structures that can be magnetically manipulated includes a smooth ring that wrinkles up, a long tube that squeezes shut, a sheet that folds itself, and a spider-like “grabber” that can crawl, roll, jump, and snap together fast enough to catch a passing ball. It can even be directed to wrap itself around a small pill and carry it across a table.
