Robots transform into furniture at EPFL (w/ Video)

EPFL scientists from the Biorobotics Laboratory (BIOROB) have developed small robotic modules that can change their shape to create reconfigurable furniture. “Eventually, all you’ll need to do is program the layout of a bedroom or a conference room, then let the modules do the work,” says Auke Ijspeert, head of the BIOROB. His “Roombots” project, co-­funded by the National Centre for Competence in Research Robotics, is the subject of an article that has been published in the online version of the journal Robotics and Autonomous Systems.
