Robots designed after nature

Using insects, salamanders, geckos, water striders and cockroaches, scientists are designing robots for various purposes. At the end, the self-rearranging robot climbs up a suitcase and does the limbo.

I'm officially requesting the beta for the foot massaging robot who also trims toenails -- maybe designed after a caterpillar? Maybe not.

Asimov started writing about robots circa 1940 and 20 years before that the word "robot" was coined. We're not quite up to Danial R. Steel's level yet but we're getting there.
