Robotic Skin Pseudopods

Not living architecture, but motile nonetheless. And it’s interesting that it works by a concept of deformation akin to – or at least parallel to – the locomotion of simpler animal life, rather than trying to replicate muscle/bone contraptions to move. Turn up the resolution, and this thing could be quite adaptable at crossing terrain and negotiating obstacles.

Plus, it looks sort of gross – and that’s always good in the advanced sciences, isn’t it?

Edit: Someone on the comments section of the boingboing entry where I found this turned me on to the Rover. Score one MORE for Sci-Fi.
