MIT engineers are developing technology that would make creating a robot easier. Their project would let users select a robot for a specific use from a library of designs and have it built and ready to operate in a matter of hours using a specialized 3D printer. The team -- which has succeeded in building prototypes for designing and printing a robot that can be used to explore contaminated areas and a device that can pick up objects -- says the next step is to come up with a programming interface and algorithms to control the devices and new programmable materials for building them.
