Earthworm-inspired biomimetic worm-bot #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Worms, Waves, and Robots: The Worm Turns… and Runs from CWRU Biorobotics Lab on Vimeo.

biorobotics shares:

We have developed several innovative designs for a new kind of robot that uses peristalsis, the method of locomotion used by earthworms. Unlike previous wormlike robots, our concept uses a continuously deformable outer mesh that interpolates the body position between discrete actuators. In this video we summarize our progress with this soft hyper-redundant robot.
This video won the “Best Video” award at the 2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA ‘12): icra2012.org/awards/

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
