Physicists Build Muscle for Shape-Changing, Cell-Sized Robots

A Cornell University team has made a robot exoskeleton that can rapidly change its shape upon sensing chemical or thermal changes in its environment. And, they claim, these microscale machines – equipped with electronic, photonic and chemical payloads – could become a powerful platform for robotics at the size scale of biological microorganisms.

When they began their work, researchers discovered that the first thing they needed to do was to digitize the audio. Five years later, the team is completing its work, which has led to advances in technology to convert speech to text, analyze speakers and understand how people collaborated to accomplish the missions.
