Meet HAMR: The versatile ambulatory microrobot

from Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University

If you’ve ever tried to kill an interloping cockroach, you’ve probably noticed two things: they’re fast and nearly invincible. While those features make roaches terrifying to most people, it’s a source of bioinspiration for roboticists at the Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS.

Led by Robert J. Wood, researchers in the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory have developed a centimeter-scale robot inspired by cockroaches.

The Harvard Ambulatory Microrobot — nicknamed HAMR — is a versatile robot that can run at high speeds, jump, climb, turn sharply, carry payloads and fall from great distances without being injured.
