An MIT-led research team has already created this insect-like "printed" robot as an example of what could be made for consumers, in a matter of hours

The origami-like insect robot could be used for exploring hazardous environments
The research team have also created a robotic fish

Already, people are pretty excited at the idea of being able to create inanimate objects using a 3D printer. Imagine, though, if you could create and print an actual moving robot, using a printer-like device in a store. If a group of scientists taking part in a new project are successful, that’s exactly what you will some day be able to do.
