DASH: The Undie-able Robot

On October 27, 2009, in About robots: create, toys, wars, development, robotics, by JB

UC Berkeley’s Biomimetics Lab created this 16-gram hexapedal robot called Dynamic Autonomous Sprawled Hexapod, or just DASH. But another “just” can be applied to what DASH can do: it just wouldn’t fucking die. It can be dropped from a height of 28 meters and it would still be up on its six feet and crawl away. Like a cockroach. Robot undieable cockroach. Hey, that’s because we don’t have enough real cockroach yet, right?
