Sea-Slug Robot: Smart Soft Elastic Robot

Sea-Slug Robot uses muscles taken from the mouth of a sea slug connected to 3D-printed components to move about, and — when an external electrical current is applied to force the muscles to contract — can 'walk' at the extremely unhurried pace of 0.43 centimeters a minute in a form of locomotion similar to a turtle crawling up a beach. The scientists who designed the bot say that in the future, groups of these creations could be used for lengthy missions which would tire traditional robots.

MRZR-X Robot: Smart Military Robot

MRZR-X, an optionally manned version of the MRZR ATV already in service with the U.S. military and the armed forces of 24 other countries. MRZR-X can be driven like a regular ATV, operated remotely, and even autonomously, dutifully following a squad of nine soldiers. In addition the vehicle for the SMET program must also carry 1,000 pounds of equipment, operate for up to six miles over a period of 72 hours without refueling/recharging, and recharge military electronics such as radios, tablets, and other devices.

Spermbot Robot: Helps Sperm Reach Egg

“spermbot,” a tiny, corkscrew-shaped motor designed to drive lethargic sperm to their target. Magnetically controlled, it works by first wrapping around the sperm’s tail, then propelling it toward—and, ideally, into—an egg. (This happens in the privacy of a medical clinic, not the bedroom.) Developed by a team of scientists in Germany, the motor could one day play a role in artificial insemination.

Daisy Robot: iPhone-Recycling Robot

Daisy was created with some of Liam’s old parts, making it a recycled robot that helps recycle iPhones. Daisy is capable of taking apart nine different versions of the iPhone, and it can disassemble up to 200 iPhones an hour. It also separates parts and removes certain components as it goes. Along with Daisy, Apple has also announced a temporary program called GiveBack, where customers can turn in devices in store or through Apple.com to be recycled.

Hygrobot Robot: Smart Micro Robot

This "hygrobot" looks like a table with asymmetric legs. When placed on moist filter paper, the top of the table slowly absorbs moisture from the air and curls up, dragging the rear leg forward. As the top of the robot bends, it is exposed to the drier air higher above the wet surface, which causes the robot to lose some of its previously absorbed moisture and return to its original shape, this time pushing the front leg forward.
