KQED E-Book on Shape-Shifting Tensegrity Robots

Dr. Agogino and her “shape shifting” tensegrity robots were featured in KQED Science, an award-winning science and environment focus of the  flagship Northern California Public Broadcasting System (PBS) and an affiliate of  the National Public Radio (NPR). See more on Engineering Is Exploring Space with Shape-Shifting Robots.

Quote: Alice Agogino is a mechanical engineering professor at the University of California at Berkeley, and she and her lab are among a group of engineers that are designing what might be the next generation of space exploring robots. These don’t look like the Mars rovers with the big wheels that you may be thinking of– oh no, they are totally different– and that’s the point. These robots actually look like a ball of rods and cables, and they are modelled after a baby toy, of all things.
