news of the day: CurveQuad (a.k.a. FlatBot)

A few years ago, I suggested to Daniel Feshbach at Cynthia Sung‘s lab to play with a curved origami design for a self-folding walking robot. He took off with that raw idea, and brought an extraordinary amount of engineering insight and ingenuity… (Here’s one of the first tries.)

Now, the CurveQuad (I like to call it FlatBot), presented at IROS’23, is winning hearts of thousands, – as seen on  a Mashable video, on IEEE Spectrum’s Robot Video Friday and DigiKey Maker Update.
