Robot gel self propels like an inchworm

Without any mechanical or electronic part, this thingy created by Shuji Hashimoto applied physics laboratory crawls like caterpillar, powered and controlled by an oscillating chemical reaction. Limited only for their lab bench for now, I think this invention is great for toy before it becomes intelligent and set out to destroy human race.

Watch the video - Chemical 'caterpillar' points to electronics-free robots.
