Make your own Vine Robot! — https://www.vinerobots.org​
Special thanks to A/Prof. Elliot Hawkes, Nicholas Naclerio, Margaret Coad, David Haggerty for appearing in this video and showing off your amazing robots. For more info on vine (and other types of) robots check out https://ve42.co/HawkesLab​, and https://ve42.co/CHARM​

Research at UCSB supported in part by the National Science Foundation grant #1944816​, by an Early Career Faculty grant from NASA’s Space Technology Research Grants Program, and by the Packard Foundation.
