Researchers at Staffordshire University believe they have achieved a world breakthrough in robotics with the Flexibot, a multijointed robotic arm. We are designing the Flexibot to move independently around the house like a caterpillar, clamping itself to a series of prearranged portals placed along the wall, ceiling or floor. Flexibot could be applied to a multitude of tasks that would be of benefit to society in general, both domestically and within industry.
