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.
