Recent biological studies on water strider insects revealed the detailed mechanism of their staying and walking on water. While macro scale bodies use buoyancy to stay on water, these very light and small insects balance their weight using repulsive surface tension forces where the insect legs are covered with hydrophobic micro-hairs. Utilizing the unique scaling advantage of these insects, this paper proposes a biologically inspired miniature micro-robot walking on water with a similar… CONTINUE READING
