Exciting Robot News!

There has been an exciting development in robot research. Not only is there now a robot that can change its shape to get in to small spaces, it now can camoflage itself as well. It does not stop there either with the camouflage not only limited to colour which is controlled by dye running through it down wires, but it can have thermal camouflage as well where hot or cold liquid is passed through it and even fluorescent, It may not look much like it in the picture, but it has been designed to act a bit like a sea creature and it is felt it will be useful for some types of medical training and search and rescue operations. More details about this ground breaking design can be found in this BBC article. Exciting Stuff!
