Past Projects
MFI
Micromechanical Flying Insect (1998-2008)
The goal of this project is to develop an autonomous 0.1 gram flying robot using insect-inspired wing kinematics.
prototype kits
MilliRobot Prototyping using Composite Fiber Toolkits (2000-2007)
We developed a low cost (<$1000)) desktop factory which will allow users to build millirobots from a kit of components.
