MORPH: A new soft material microfabrication process

Researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, Harvard John A. [...]Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and Boston University have used a new integrated fabrication process to create robotic soft spiders—inspired by the millimeter-sized colorful Australian peacock spider—from a single elastic material with body-shaping, motion, and color features. Sheila Russo and Tommaso Ranzani, now assistant professors at Boston University, are coauthors of the study -- https://wyss.harvard.edu/soft-multi-functional-robots-get-really-small/
