No batteries required: The first autonomous, entirely soft robot

The octobot is powered by a chemical reaction and controlled with a soft logic board. A reaction inside the bot transforms a small amount of liquid fuel (hydrogen peroxide) into a large amount of gas, which flows into the octobot’s arms and inflates them like a balloon. A microfluidic logic circuit, a soft analog of a simple electronic oscillator, controls when hydrogen peroxide decomposes to gas in the octobot. Credit: Lori Sanders

the purple ones are my favorite. happy first day of spring!

To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal, jump up on stage and wax a chump like a candle.
