Harvard Researchers Develop Robot With Snake-like Skin

in #steemstem3 years ago (edited)


Hey again,

@trumpman with you today, bringing you a really cool video I just stumbled upon. The video shows a cool soft robot with a special "skin" that allows it to move like a snake. The robot was developed by Harvard researchers and what's really interesting is that the "skin" was made using kirigami, an ancient Japanese paper craft variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper, rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami. Usually, no glue is used.

Just watch the video for more info!
