A'squishy' robot that doesn't break when it is dropped 600 feet (183m) has been created by engineers at the University of Berkeley. The robots are football shaped and are made up of a 3D network of contractible rods which let them change their shape and to move around on the ground. Emergency teams could deploy swarms of the robots into war zones or earthquakes, giving them access to the situation based on data the robots send back. The mobile devices can be dropped from the air via drones or other aircraft, or by ground vehicles, into environments not immediately accessible by humans. Engineers at the University of Berkeley have created a'squishy' robot (pictured) that doesn't break when it is dropped 600 feet (183m) from air Squishy Robotics, who created the bots, have called then the'eyes, ears, and sensor for first responders before and after entering the disaster scene'.
