Origami Robowheel ~ Deformable Fabric Bot!

UD spots Origami Wheel Robot by Seoul National University BioRobotics Lab team on Discover News...
"A clever robotic wheel based on one of the most famous origami patterns, the magic ball pattern. The wheel they created can change its radius by deforming its shape. This is a useful trick to be able to perform, since a wheel with a large radius is better at climbing over things, while a wheel with a smaller radius is better at squeezing under things."
