Harvard researchers demonstrate soft robot camouflage system
Having already broken new ground in robotics with the development, last year, of a class of "soft", silicone-based robots based on creatures like squid and octopi, Harvard scientists are now working to create systems that would allow the robots to camouflage themselves, or stand out in their environment. As described in a paper published August 16 in Science, a team of researchers led by George M. Whitesides, the Woodford L. and Ann A. Flowers University Professor, has developed a "dynamic col
