Team Builds the First Living Robots | UVM Today | The University of Vermont

The line between robots and living organisms is beginning to blur. Researchers at the University of Vermont and Tufts University have now essentially created new creatures from frog cells, complete with programmable behaviors.Robots are made to mimic living creatures, and as smart as they’re becoming, we can still look at them and understand that they aren’t “living” in any real sense. But that line is now beginning to blur. Researchers at the University of Vermont and Tufts University have essentially created new creatures from frog cells, complete with programmable behaviors.

Scientists at UVM and Tufts used a supercomputer to evolve a design for a living robot made out of frog cells, then built it. The new creature did what it was supposed to do --make its way across a Petri dish. There were also some surprises.Scientists at UVM and Tufts used a supercomputer to evolve a design for a living robot made out of frog cells, then built it.
