Scientists Create the Next Generation of Living Robots

Last year, a team of computer scientists from the University of Vermont and biologists from Tufts University created novel, tiny self-healing biological machines from frog cells called “Xenobots” that could move around, push a payload, and even exhibit collective behavior in the presence of a swarm of other Xenobots.

Get ready for Xenobots 2.0.
