How to build a robot that can build itself from scratch

Recode editor Matt Mullenweg explains how he built a robot to build itself using only a few basic ingredients, like a 3D printer and an internet connection.

“You can make a robot out of plastic,” Mullenwieg told Recode.

“That’s really easy to make.

We can build a thing out of 3D-printed parts, but we can’t build it with a computer.

We need to do it with human hands.”
