The Harvard Microrobotics Lab focuses on the mechanics, materials, design, and manufacturing for novel robots, including both microrobotics and soft robotics. The experimental lab explores fundamental questions in micromechanics, actuation, fluid mechanics, controls, and microelectronics. It's major projects include flying and crawling robotic insects (e.g. the "RoboBee"), squishy soft-bodied robots, and wearable robots.
