    "Footage from the researchers' laboratory shows a sheet of paper and plastic mounted with batteries and motors that folds itself into a working machine without human intervention and then scuttles out of shot.
    The flat-pack robot uses "shape memory polymers" that contract like muscles when they are heated. The robot takes about four minutes to assemble from scratch and can walk at a speed of around 5cm per second.
    ...the robot could pave the wave for flat-packed machines for use in space or in hazardous environments on Earth where they can be put into confined spaces and left to assemble themselves."

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer trailer unveiled

    - Supply drop options will be added to the game, covering both standard weapons and items you can only use once.
    - There’ll be 12 game modes at launch, with new ones including Momentum (in which the team that captured a position last racks up points at an increasing pace) and Uplink (in which you have to carry a satellite drone to an uplink, but the player carrying the drone can’t use weapons.)
    - There’ll be a firing range option to try out weapons and customizations before using them in a game.
