Sandia makes a tinier robot

from the better-batteries-needed dept.
Waldemar Perez writes "Are we making progress in robotics or what? This robot developed by Sandia National Labs is even smaller than MIT's nanowalker presented in MIT's Nanotechnology conference last September. The machine weighs less than an ounce and occupies a 1/4 inch cubic space. Powered by three watch batteries, it rides on track wheels and consists of an 8K ROM processor, temperature sensor, and two motors that drive the wheels. Enhancements being considered include a miniature camera, microphone, communication device, and chemical micro-sensor."

yuvalro also wrote in about this, pointing to the "cool pic!" of a miniature robot. The article was also discussed on Slashdot.
