Ice Robot Could Self-Assemble on Other Planets | Mashable



IceBot is a handmade, proof-of-concept ice robot created in the GRASP Lab at the University of Pennsylvania. While IceBot is currently looked at for Antarctic exploration, researchers hope it could one day be used in space exploration missions.

The idea is to have a robot that can build and repair itself using the abundantly available resources. On a cold planet, the robot could potentially source ice locally and use heat, water, or a power drill to sculpt and repair itself.
