Scientists Tout Cheap Robotic Helper That Assembles Itself

Self-assembling robots? I guess it looks like Skynet will make its August 29th launch date. eek!

Scientists say they have developed a low-cost robot prototype made from paper and children's trinkets that can assemble itself and perform a task without human help. The technology could eventually lead to affordable 'robotic helpers' for use in everything from household chores to exploring space, according to the team of Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers who developed it.
