Dash, DIY Origami Robot That Scampers Like an Insect

Dash Origami Robot

Dash is an ingenious hexapod robot with foldable origami-style construction and a scampering gait inspired by insects and other fast moving creatures. The tiny robot can be easily built from a single sheet of cardboard polymer composite. It can withstand falls from a table (or even a building, so say the designers) and scampers at nearly six feet per second. Designed by a team of PhD students at University of California, Berkeley, Dash is currently being developed for production.
