Self-assembling 3D-printed robot.

"Researchers from Harvard and MIT recently teamed up too create a 3D-printed inchworm robot that can assemble itself. Shape memory polymers — materials that automatically fold into designated shapes — were used so that the robot can transform itself from a flat, two-dimensional object into an inch-worm-like robot, which folds along two hinges. The only human intervention needed used was to attach a motor and battery."
