A new robot has been developed by the creative minds at Nagoya Institute of Technology’s Sano Lab that uses its own weight to keep going, going, going.
Popular Science pointed us to the video from DigInfo on YouTube:
The design uses old knowledge to create a new robot that needs absolutely no electricity, computer chips or anything else to function. And, it has some great potential uses -- the design could be used for prosthetic limps or for walking devices for those who have difficulty with mobility. All it would take to get it moving is a bit of a push and a slight downhill grade.
