*Self-Actuating Hygrobot* Scientists have harnessed the power of humidity to create self-locomotive microrobots called hygrobots. This actuator-ratchet system was inspired by motile plants and uses a hygroscopic-responsive film of aligned nanofibers that swell and shrink in response to changes in humidity. As the relative humidity of the surrounding air oscillates between 20 and 85%, the stru...
