Rather than rigid metal parts connected by mechanical components, robots may now be made of folded paper, carbon laminates or soft gels. They may be formed fully integrated from a 2D or 3D printer rather than assembled from individual components. Wiggling spider is one of the research products of the Informal Robotics. Inspired by traditional origami arts and made of laminated laser-cut cardboards, the spider can be mass-produced from sheets of papers.
