MIT’s new modular lunar robot has ‘worms’ for arms
MIT engineers have designed a walking lunar robot cleverly inspired by the animal kingdom. However, to avoid “a zoo of machines” with various robots for every task imaginable, the modular WORMS would allow astronauts to swap out limbs, bases and appendages for the task at hand.
