Cornell scientists create ‘living’ machines that eat, grow, and evolve


The field of robotics is going through a renaissance thanks to
advances in machine learning and sensor technology. Each generation
of robot is engineered with greater mechanical complexity and
smarter operating software than the last. But what if, instead of
painstakingly designing and engineering a robot, you could just
tear open a packet of primordial soup, toss it in the microwave on
high for two minutes, and then grow your own ‘lifelike’ robot?
If you’re a Cornell research team, you’d grow a bunch and make
them race. Scientists from Cornell University have successfully
constructed DNA-based machines with incredibly life-like
capabilities.…
