Soft-Bodied Robots Developed by Harvard



Soft bodied robots are being developed by Harvard researchers. Soft Robotics, led by Harvard’s George Whitesides, have created a new type of soft actuator that functions like a “human bicep muscle”. The rubber vacuum-actuated muscle-inspired pneumatic structures expand and contract allowing the robotic limbs and other structures to move and grip. Jo Ankier and Margaret J. Howell discuss the latest in robotics on the Lip News.

    Keep cheering on your demise via "The Replacements" (hey, what a sec, maybe that is why the jooz the run hollywood made a movie called "The Replacements"… nah…. they weren't trying to tell us indirectly what their plan is right? Too "far-fetched" in OUR DAY right?)

    With ALL the evil getting exposed intensely concerning the fully corrupt machinations of this corporate world, you'd think they would wake up, but they don't huh? Know why? They have us studied so well that they are the proud who proclaim we think we what think about first world civil life because they are the ones who put that in our heads (PotLEoZ – Protocol 13).

    Go ahead, cheer on your demise you 'liberals';

    The best definition of Liberalism aka parasitic capitalism, which was given by Francois-René de Latour du Pin (1834-1924): 'Liberalism is a free fox in a free chicken coop'.

    Yesterday it was called "COMMUNISM" and "SOCIALISM" and today it's called "LIBERALISM/PROGRESSIVISM", SAME TOTALITARIAN IDEOLOGY DIFFERENT NAME TO SELL IT TO THE JUST BORN WHO DON'T KNOW HISTORY. Communism (Liberalism) is a DIABOLIC spiritual disease.

    Norman Matton Thomas (November 20, 1884 – December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the SOCIALIST PARTY OF AMERICA. The SOCIALIST PART CANDIDATE for President of the US, Norman Thomas, said THIS in a 1944 speech to which 19 year olds like yourself are HISTORY BANKRUPT ON;

    "The American people will NEVER knowingly adopt Socialism. But, under the name of "Liberalism", they WILL adopt EVERY FRAGMENT of the SOCIALIST program, until one day America will be a SOCIALIST nation, WITHOUT knowing HOW IT HAPPENED." — He went on to state; "I NO LONGER need to run as Presidential Candidate for the SOCIALIST Party. The DEMOCRAT PARTY has ADOPTED OUR PLATFORM."

    WAKE UP!
