Robotic Dragonfly to Detect Oil Spills and Acidity

Engineers have developed an electronics-free, entirely soft robot shaped like a dragonfly that can skim across water and react to environmental conditions such as pH, temperature or the presence of oil. The proof-of-principle demonstration could be the precursor to more advanced, autonomous, long-range environmental sentinels for monitoring a wide range of potential telltale signs of problems.

3D Printing Used to Develop a new Instrument for Eye Imaging

OCT, or optical coherence tomography, produces slices of image data that can be stacked to produce a 3D representation of the tissue of interest. In the context of retinal imaging, it produces cross-sectional views of the retina that allow the ophthalmologist to readily visualize subsurface features of the retina that are much more difficult to visualize in two-dimensional en face, or top-down views.

Origami Inspired Robots That Could fit in a Cell?

Imagine robots that can move, sense and respond to stimuli, but that are smaller than a hair's width. Building robots at such a small scale involves a lot more innovation than simply shrinking all of the parts of a normal robot.
