STAR.V3 – High Speed 3D Printed Robot

For this Saturday let’s kick back and check out this cool high speed 3D Printed robot. The name STAR comes from Sprawl Tuned Autonomous Robot and that’s exactly what it does, with speed up to 5.2m/s. In the video you can see it sprawling on flat surfaces as well as overcoming some obstacles. The robot was designed by David Zarrouk, Andrew Pullin, Nick Kohut and Ronald Fearing at the Biomimetic Millisystems Lab, UC Berkeley. It kind of reminds me of a replicator on Stargate, or would you say so?
