Inspired by the black ghost knifefish, two researchers from the IT University of Copenhagen have developed a soft robot that taught itself to swim. By means of an evolutionary algorithm, the artificial fish has discovered a swimming technique resembling that which the knife fish developed through natural evolution.

In just 13 minutes, a newly developed robot printer can transform an aluminum wire with little motors attached into a functional robot that can be recycled and reused for other purposes. Researchers from the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU), MIT and Columbia, among others, are behind the invention, which might eventually be used in space or in disaster situations.
