Researchers have created a micro-robot whose electroadhesive foot pads allow it to climb on vertical and upside-down conductive surfaces, such as the inside walls of a jet engine. Groups of micro-robots could one day be used to inspect complicated machinery and detect safety issues sooner, while reducing maintenance costs.
