The first paper robot prototype i have create is very basic and is limited. It can only walk in a straight line.
So the first thing i'm going to try doing is make it walk in any direction. It will need some modification to the design but it will still be very simple. Remeber its a paper robot 😄
Lets just call the next prototype the 'Double Minion-Face Paper Robot Prototype' .
I also want to power it from an on-board battery and controller. I hate calling it a robot when i'm actually controlling it externally.
This video shows the first attempt in creating the very simple to make, Paper Robot integrated with my flexible PCB actuator!
I know it's not shaped like a worm but that's where the inspiration came from!
The coolest thing about my magnetic PCB actuators is that I can play around with new robot ideas! In this video I have mentioned different type of soft robotic ideas I have, all from this technology.
This project page is about the robot worm concept.
