Nasa unveils origami robot

NASA is developing a robot that could go where no robot has gone before: over and under difficult terrain on Mars or another planet. The PUFFER —  Pop-Up Flat Folding Explorer Robot — could traverse ground that a standard rover would get caught on, making a helpful travel companion. The space administration says its Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California is working on the little trooper, which will be lightweight and “was inspired by origami.” Mar 23, 2017
