1,304 views
Associate Professor Kasper Støy is developing a new robotic platform.

The robot is an open-source 3D printer extended with functionality for handling liquids and reaction vessels, and for obtaining feedback from the reaction vessels either using computer vision or task-specific sensors in real-time.

The goal is to help researchers improve their methods in creating artificial chemical life, living microorganisms, and complex chemical reaction networks. In the area of developing energy of wastewater.

The robot is part of the E.U. research project EVOBLISS - Technological Evolution of Synergy Between Physicochemical and Living Systems - funded by the FET proactive on Evolving Living Technology under the 7th frame program.
