Watch as Six Micro-Robots Pull a 4,000-Lb Car

Standford University students were interested in learning about how tiny things move objects much larger than themselves. 

BdmlStanford: Not only are ants impressively strong, they are also amazing team players. This research inspired by such teamwork examples how the ways that microrobots move effects their ability to work in teams. With careful consideration to robot gait, we demonstrate a team of 6 super strong microTug microrobots ( weighing 100 grams pulling the author's unmodified 3900lb (1800kg) car on polished concrete.
