Amazing unfolding footage of MIT’s origami robot

Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have unveiled a printable origami robot. Weighing only a third of a gram, and measuring just one centimetre from front to back, when heated this small but mighty robot folds itself up from a flat sheet of plastic and can swim, climb, traverse rough terrain, and carry a load twice its weight. Watch this amazing footage and prepare to be amazed.
