Next generation of swimming living robots can self-train, showing striking speed and strength

Researchers at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) led by Samuel Sánchez, appear in different media for their latest achievement in the biological robots field. The researchers have developed new biobots, based on muscle cells, that can swim at unprecedented velocities.

We bioengineered BIOBOTS composed of muscle cells that move like worms or fishes, react to electrical stimuli and exert surprising forces and velocities thanks to their self-training with the 3D printed soft skeleton.
