Liquid-pumped robots made by 3D printer

Robotics researchers in the US have developed a new technique to build working robots using a 3D printer.

The work was carried out by at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab and involves printing solid and liquid materials simultaneously.

The engineers believe their method could one day be used by disaster relief organisations to deploy customised bots in dangerous environments.
