Here is a myriapod robot that relies on variable body-axis flexibility to navigate. Developed by researchers from the Department of Mechanical Science and Bioengineering at Osaka University, this robot can turn without a complex control system thanks to its flexible couples. This robot was inspired by insects that make quick movement changes by controlling the dynamic instability in their motion.
