I, for one, welcome our new robot octopus overlords.
A team of Harvard researchers just published their paper describing
the beginnings of our domination by cute octopoid robots their successful development of the Octobot, an autonomous robot with a soft silicone body and soft circuitry.
“This research demonstrates that we can easily manufacture the key components of a simple, entirely soft robot,” said Robert Wood, one of the authors of the study, in a Harvard news release. He added that this will lay “the foundation for more complex designs.”
