A Unique Pop-up Origami Fabrication of Micro Robots
17 February 2012, 3:29 pm

  Harvard's Microrobotics Lab has created a new Pop-up Origami style of fabrication for their winged microbots.  A carrier is first made out of several layers of carbon fiber, brass, and thin flexible plastic.  Then, using fabrication techniques such as laser etching, a design forms and then it is popped into place in sort of a pop-up book and Origami fashion.  The robot is then tack soldered to lock the design into place and then laser cut and removed from the carrier material.  The Mobee or Monolithic Bee is a very tiny robot at about the size of a Quarter.  The video shows this unique assembly process and the finalized Mobee's wings being tested at 1Hz and 30Hz.  A must-see very impressive manufacture of winged microbots!
