A robot that makes and launches paper planes to test designs

A group of engineers at CREATE Lab (Computational Robot Design & Fabrication Lab), EPFL, in Lausanne Switzerland, has designed and built a robot arm that is capable of designing paper airplanes, building them and then launching them to see how well they work. In their paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, Nana Obayashi, Kai Junge, Stefan Ilić and Josie Hughes describe their robotic system.
