Soft Robots Mimic Biological Movements

At Harvard University, researchers have developed a model for designing soft robots. The special features of these robots include bending as a human index finger does and twisting like a thumb when a single pressure source powers the robots. For long, scientists have followed a process of trial and error for designing a soft robot that moves organically—twisting as a human wrist does, or bending just like a finger. Now, at the Wyss Institute for Biologically inspired Engineering and the Harvard Read more [...]
