Self-Assembling origami robot walks on its own

"Footage from the researchers' laboratory shows a sheet of paper and plastic mounted with batteries and motors that folds itself into a working machine without human intervention and then scuttles out of shot.
The flat-pack robot uses "shape memory polymers" that contract like muscles when they are heated. The robot takes about four minutes to assemble from scratch and can walk at a speed of around 5cm per second.
...the robot could pave the wave for flat-packed machines for use in space or in hazardous environments on Earth where they can be put into confined spaces and left to assemble themselves."

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer trailer unveiled
Among the key points:
- As expected, an EXO suit will overcome the pesky limitations of playing a human being in such games, with the ability to cloak yourself, hover and use a force-field to protect yourself. As a result, you’ll be able to kill from above.
- Supply drop options will be added to the game, covering both standard weapons and items you can only use once.
- There’ll be 12 game modes at launch, with new ones including Momentum (in which the team that captured a position last racks up points at an increasing pace) and Uplink (in which you have to carry a satellite drone to an uplink, but the player carrying the drone can’t use weapons.)
- There’ll be a firing range option to try out weapons and customizations before using them in a game.
