Robert Full, Secrets of Movement From Geckos and Roaches

Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
UC Berkeley biologist Robert Full is fascinated with cockroach legs that allow them to scuttle at full speed across loose mesh and gecko feet that have billions of nano-bristles to run straight up walls. In this TEDTalk, Full discusses his research on the biomechanics of animal locomotion and his efforts to design the perfect robotic "distributed foot." "Dr Full cheerfully admits that some of his real-life critters can be disgusting," says The Economist, "but they offer valuable insights into how to conquer challenging terrain."
