iMobot Changes Up Three Ways

Graham Ryland and Professor Harry Cheng teamed up at UC Davis and came up with iMobot, a robot that has 4 degrees of freedom, 2 joints and 2 wheels. The module can run on its wheels, creep like an inchworm or lift its body and pan as a camera platform. Backed by a grant from the National Science Foundation, the pair formed the company Barobo and hopes to distribute its bot to those who are studying robotics but don't yet have hardware. The end of 2011 is the target date for marketing.
