Visit Dennis Hong's lab and you'll see robots climbing walls, negotiating bumpy uneven terrain, even typing a letter. One has a human-like hand, another slithers like a snake, another has human-like legs that it used to stand up and walk, and others have spidery legs --this lab would make the bar scene in the film Star Wars seem tame! With support from the National Science Foundation, the RoMeLa Lab at Virginia Tech is developing robots to perform a wide variety of tasks and to eventually be able to move and think on their own.
