Markus Waibel writes, "The topic of the latest Talking Robots podcast episode is Nano-Robotics, and we interview the head of the Nano-Robotics lab at Carnegie Mellon University, Metin Sitti. He is well known for his work on artificial gecko hairs and their applications in robotics, and for his work on the Micromechanical Flying Insect Project (also see an earlier post). He has also just made headlines last month for using bacteria to construct a tiny robot and controlling its motion using chemicals (see also here). In this episode Metin Sitti talks about artificial gecko hairs and how they are used in his wall-climbing robots, about the advantages of down-scaling robots, about the state of the art in micro-robotics, and about the potential of hybrid bio-mechanical robots."
