CNET examined Professor Daniela Rus’ work to create a new system for designing and producing robots funded by a National Science Foundation Expedition Grant. “In the future, you may go to a "Robo Kinkos" store to have your robots printed,” wrote CNET reporter Martin LaMonica. “The Massachusetts Institute of Technology today announced a five-year research initiative to let people design personalized robots and have them made with three-dimensional printers.” Read the full article here: http://news.cnet.com/8301-11386_3-57408609-76/diy-robots-print-your-own-....

Professor Daniela Rus, director of CSAIL, is leading a movement to revolutionize our access to robots. With help from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Expeditions in Computing Program, Rus and her team in the Distributed Robotics Lab at CSAIL are developing a new process through which the average person could design, customize and print a specialized robot in a matter of hours.
