All-terrain microbot moves by tumbling over complex topography

If tiny robots are going to one day be making fantastic voyages through our bodies, they'll need to learn how to tackle the treacherous terrain in there. Engineers at Purdue University have developed a new magnetic mini-robot named microTUM, which moves by tumbling end over end and can clamber over bumps, trenches and hills, in wet or dry conditions...
