This is the Flexipod: a 3D printed soft robot made for dynamic locomotion. It was made with a desktop 3D printer using flexible TPU. This robot has gyroid infill for a soft, flexible structure. Its legs are driven by geared servomotors. Flexipod’s soft body protects the electronics.
Flexipod’s legs and body deform to dampen shock. This cool robot can perform backflips on various terrains as the above video shows.
