Apr 22, 2021

Seoul National University (SNU) said in a statement on April 22 that researchers from its mechanical engineering lab led by Professor Cho Kyu-jin developed a robot made of a paper-thin composite of flexible materials that can move itself to the desired position underwater through fluttering motions. Cho said the technology would open the way for the development of new types of ocean pollution removal robots.
