Research sheds light on the underlying mechanics of soft filaments
The development of artificial nanomotors could be game-changing in the field of robotics research
Wearing a flower brooch that blooms before your eyes sounds like magic. KAIST researchers have made it real with robotic muscles
The controllable shape-shifting material could have broad applications for manufacturing, robotics, biomedical devices, and artificial muscles
The new muscles are made from carbon fiber-reinforced siloxane rubber and have a coiled geometry
Such soft robots contain tremendous potential for future applications as they adapt to dynamic environments and are well-suited to closely interact with humans
Researchers wrap nanotubes around rubber core, sparking a creation that may lead to artificial muscles, sensors
Vegetable-based muscles that can expand and contract while bending described in the journal "Applied Physics Letters."
Researchers are using fibres from fishing line and sewing thread to create inexpensive artificial muscles that could be used in medical devices, humanoid robots, prosthetic limbs, or woven into fabrics.
