Physicists Take First Step Toward Cell-Sized Robots

An electricity-conducting, environment-sensing, shape-changing machine the size of a human cell? Is that even possible? Cornell physicists not only say yes, but they’ve actually built the “muscle” for one. The 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
