Soft robots that mimic human muscles
12.10.2016. – An EPFL team is developing soft, flexible and reconfigurable robots. Air-actuated, they behave like human muscles and may be used in physical rehabilitation. They are made of low-cost materials and could easily be produced on a large scale.
First EPFL workshop on Nature’s strategies for Engineering and Design!
For this occasion we have the privledge to have with us France Bourely, biologist and world recognized photographer. You will get the chance to learn about nature’s design through her unique way of looking at organisms, amazing photography and natural samples!
Join us for a 2h evening fierwork of ideas!
