Scientists from Scotland have developed stretchy worm-like robots inspired by the movements of worms which could be used in the fields of industry and prosthetics, Report informs referring to the Evening Standard newspaper.
A team of engineers from the University of Glasgow says the “roboworms” can stretch up to nine times their own length and are capable of a form of proprioception – the method by which biological organisms like worms perceive their position in space.
This allows the robot worms to squeeze into tight spots that rigid robots cannot reach.
The researchers hope that the invention could lead to a new generation of robots capable of autonomously exploring difficult-to-reach places which could be used in areas such as mining and construction or disaster relief to search for survivors trapped in the rubble.

Justin Trudeau said his pandemic recovery policies wouldn’t be shaped by the demands of what he called “anti-vaxxer mobs” that have dogged his campaign events in recent weeks, including some who threw debris at the Liberal leader on Monday.
Trudeau made the comments at a steel plant in Welland, Ont., where he pledged to extend pandemic supports for workers and businesses if his government is re-elected on September 20.
A noisy crowd of a few dozen people gathered outside the gate to the facility as Trudeau spoke inside, expressing anger over COVID-19 vaccines and pandemic measures. A similar group attended a whistle-stop event in Newmarket, Ont., the night before, shouting slurs at Liberal volunteers, supporters, and the leader himself as he shook hands and greeted people.
People angry at Trudeau congregated in progressively larger numbers at all of the leader’s campaign stops in southern Ontario on Monday.
After the late afternoon event in London, Ont., some people in the noisy crowd threw dime-sized rocks at Trudeau as he walked out of the microbrewery to his campaign bus.
Trudeau later downplayed the incident, though he acknowledged to reporters that some of the projectiles might have struck him on the shoulder.
“Upon the President’s tasks and instructions, large-scale reconstruction work is being carried out in the liberated territories of Azerbaijan,” Assistant to President of Azerbaijan, the head of the Foreign Policy Affairs Department of Azerbaijan’s Presidential Administration Hikmet Hajiyev told Haber Global, Report informs.
He also mentioned the Victory Road to Shusha city: “However, as President said, the goal of the Azerbaijani state is to return the IDPs to their homes safely and honorably as soon as possible. He said that we were working against time, but our people and state want our IDPs to return to their ancestral lands.”
The Assistant to President said that Armenia needs to have normal ties with its neighbors: “Maybe Armenia does not need ammunition, bullet today. Armenia buys weapons, wants to form an army. We think that such actions are nothing but an attempt by Armenia to console itself. Any thinking about revenge in Armenia will be the next historic mistake. Azerbaijan has ensured its territorial integrity and will continue to protect its borders and the security of its citizens.”
“Trilateral negotiations are underway to open the Zangazur corridor. The opening of the corridor is a part of the tripartite agreement signed on November 10. Therefore, Armenia has a commitment in this regard. Consequently, there will be a good opportunity for everyone to improve relations in the region. Unfortunately, we see illogical opinions in Armenia in this regard,” – Hajiyev added.
The Assistant to President said that during the 30-year conflict, Armenia obviously destroyed Azerbaijan’s cultural and Islamic heritage: “We repeatedly appealed to UNESCO. However, they said in response that they were not a political organization, the Minsk Group was interested in the issue, and UNESCO was not able to deal with this issue. Buildings can be reconstructed, but it is not easy to restore cultural heritage, especially historical heritage. It is an integral part of not only Azerbaijan but also world culture. UNESCO had expressed some readiness to visit the region. We are ready to receive them. The Convention on the Protection of Cultural Heritage in the Event of Armed Conflict should be the basis and give them a mandate. On this basis, all our cultural heritage must be assessed, the damage caused to them must be assessed and presented to the international community.”
