Making Simple Robots: Exploring Cutting-Edge Robotics with Everyday Stuff

Making Simple Robots is based on one idea: Anybody can build a robot! That includes kids, school teachers, parents, and non-engineers. If you can knit, sew, or fold a flat piece of paper into a box, you can build a no-tech robotic part. If you can use a hot glue gun, you can learn to solder basic electronics into a low-tech robot that reacts to its environment. And if you can figure out how to use the apps on your smart phone, you can learn enough programming to communicate with a simple robot.

Written in language that non-engineers can understand, Making Simple Robots helps beginners move beyond basic craft skills and materials to the latest products and tools being used by artists and inventors. Find out how to animate folded paper origami, design a versatile robot wheel-leg for 3D printing, or program a rag doll to blink its cyborg eye. Each project includes step-by-step directions as well as clear diagrams and photographs. And every chapter offers suggestions for modifying and expanding the projects, so that you can return to the projects again and again as your skill set grows.

MIT researchers are making computers out of live bacteria

In the future, you could be eating cancer-detecting robots in much the same way you take your morning vitamins.

Researchers at MIT have created a new responsive material that can change along with its environment, using living cells that act like basic computers. The technique uses genetically engineered bacteria—fine-tuned to respond to various stimuli—that can be 3D-printed into any shape.

The new approach required two inventions: First, the researchers had to create a new kind of printable ink in which bacteria can live for long stretches of time. To do so, they made a gel formula with a toothpaste-like consistency that mixes water and nutrients to sustain the cells. Second, the researchers built a custom 3D printer that can precisely print their new ink onto surfaces.

To test the material, the researchers altered some bacteria to change color upon encountering particular chemicals. They modified three groups of bacteria to respond to three different chemicals and printed them into a tree-like structure. From there, they coated someone’s hand with those chemicals and applied the structure like a press-on tattoo. Over the course of several hours, the tree’s branches lit up in different colors as each bacterial group registered its corresponding chemical. These results were published Dec. 5 in the journal Advanced Materials.

The researchers aren’t the first to attempt 3D printing with live cells, but others’ attempts have had little success. Previous attempts have used mammalian cells, which “are too weak, and they easily rupture,” Hyunwoo Yuk, a graduate student and paper co-author, told MIT News. “It turns out those cells were dying during the printing process.”

The bacteria, in contrast, stayed alive for 24 hours after printing, Xinyue Liu, another graduate student and paper co-author, told Quartz. (The MIT group believes it would have stayed alive longer, but didn’t test their cells beyond 24 hours.)

While the group’s living tattoos can’t do much yet, their work lays the foundation for more complex applications. For example, the bacterial structures could be used to encode logic, Liu said. In a simple example she gave, two bacteria could work together to create a simple logic gate, the building blocks of computers: Bacteria one would secrete a chemical when stimulated, and the second bacteria would look for whether that chemical had been secreted or not. In this way, the system represents a 1 when bacteria one fires; otherwise it represents a 0.

In the future, with this structure as a building block, researchers could eventually design far more sophisticated structures, such as an ingestible living robot that secretes the correct drug when it detects a tumor. “We can use bacterial cells like workers in a 3D factory,” Liu said. “As long as the fabrication method and approach are viable, applications such as implants and ingestibles should be possible.”
