Daniela Rus’ work on modular robotics mentioned in Wired

Daniela Rus, an associate professor at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, or CSAIL, demonstrated the modular, self-configuring molecule robot that can change shapes to get into tight spaces.

„You could use a bunch of them to plug a hole in a levee,” she said, referencing the Hurricane Katrina disaster. „Or if it has to go through a tunnel, you could squeeze through like a snake.”
