Reconfigurable robots:
adaptive technology for dynamic worlds

How can we be more human while in harmony with our evolving world?


Adaptation is the adjustment of organisms to their environment to improve their chances of survival. The focus of adaptive technology is to promote human autonomy, not the opposite. We need the technology to assist, complement, and facilitate our changing needs in our dynamic world.

This exhibition highlights adaptive reconfigurable robots. Their system-level intelligence characterizes them through unconventional system designs and control, novel material components, and advanced manufacturing methodologies.
