Modular Self-Reconfigurable Robots

Modular Self-Reconfigurable Robots

Researchers at MIT's CSAIL HCI Engineering Group have developed modular cube-based self-reconfigurable robots named ElectroVoxel that use electromagnet-powered actuation embedded into each cube's edge to reconfigure in three dimensions via pivoting.
