3D-printed biorobots powered by sea slug muscles

3D-printed biorobots powered by sea slug muscles

Sometimes, it is hard to believe what the scientists are capable of. For example, they have created a biorobot that consists of a 3D-printed body and real muscles from a sea slug. Now, such a robot is able to crawl slowly.
