Robot that designs, builds and tests folded paper objects, can make paper airplanes that fly farther than human-made airplanes in the same number of attempts.

A robot Paber Bot can design, build and test objects made of folded paper, such as airplanes or grippers, better than a human in the same number of attempts.

In the competition, Paper Bot planes consistently outperformed human-made planes. The researchers ensured a level playing field for both humans and robots by giving them the same number of trials. PaperBot planes flew farther, demonstrating superior aerodynamics and stability.

Paper Bot’s capabilities are not limited to aviation. Imagine a robot that can fold complex origami structures for medical devices, packaging or even disaster relief. The same principles that make airplanes fly better can revolutionize other fields.
