Full-featured robot printing system created (video)

  • February 14, 2021

Scientists at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have created a system capable of creating simple electronic devices on its own.

LaserFactory is a state-of-the-art system based on a specially designed laser cutter and implemented electrical circuitry technology. Users can use it to create devices based on the components available in the library and make changes using the 2D editor. The program then sends the specified information to the LaserFactory system, which uses the laser cutter to print not only the device itself, but also the mentioned circuits. At the very end the solution itself connects them together into a whole.

As you can see in the video below, a robot or drone created in this way is almost immediately ready for use as soon as it is created.
