14. Millipedes, Mars Rovers, and 3D Printed Robots - we explore complex Rheology and Biomechanics with Professor Daniel Goldman

Description

Whew, what a title! In this episode we sit down with Professor Daniel Goldman from the Physics Department at Georgia Tech to discuss how the biomechanics of different organisms interact with complex and dynamic surfaces to enable locomotion. I had to opportunity to tour his lab and speak with each of his graduate students and they are doing some crazy stuff, from supporting NASA with inter-planetary rover design, to building pneumatic millipedes, to robotic particles that interact with each other...cheap, advanced, and 3d printed robots are at the heart of much of the work happening in his CRAB lab (http://crablab.gatech.edu).
