Submission + - New Technique for Mass-Producing Microbots Inspired by Pop-up Books and Origami (gizmag.com)

Zothecula writes: Inspired by origami and children's pop-up books, Harvard engineers have pioneered a means of mass-producing bee-sized flying microrobots. The breakthrough mechanizes the already state-of-the art process of making Harvard's Mobee robots by hand, by mass producing flat assemblies by the sheet which can be folded and assembled in a single movement. The technique, which cunningly exploits existing machinery for making printed circuit boards, can theoretically be applied to a multitude of electromechanical machines.

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
