Robot: Toy Potential

When a robot has "toy potential" you know it's gotta be cool.

Today at Research Expo, Mechanical engineering students from the Jacobs School will unveil a new and improved iFling, a fun, remote-controlled robot vehicle that can, among other tasks, pick up and throw ping pong balls. iFling was designed using a new 3D printer and has potential commercial use as a toy, according to professor Thomas Bewley.

Bewley's students will also showcase Switchblade and four other student-designed robots TODAY April 15 at the Jacobs School’s annual Research Expo April 15.
