The Stanford Daily Online has posted an interview with Mark Cutkosky about biomemetic robot design in general and the Sprawl project in particular. Mark talks about the advantages of designing robots based on cockroaches, saying, "There are some things that animals can do much better than humans, like climb walls and run very fast". He also notes that, "for the amount of intelligence that we're actually able to put into small robots, insects are a much better target than mammals - let alone humans - in terms of behaviors and learning.".
