Article: Watch Yaroslav's trajectoids rolling down pre-programmed, periodic paths


A team of scientists designed an algorithm that programs 3D objects of arbitrary shapes, so-called trajectoids, to roll along pre-determined, periodic paths. Watch a short video on fascinating trajectoids hereThis work was featured on the cover of Nature and may find application to robotics and quantum physics. Read more on this in Nature's News & Views article here.
