Soft Robotics and Bioinspiration
Created By: Gianteye
Roboticists frequently find inspiration from the incredible evolved forms of nature, and translate them into fresh thinking and solutions. This workshop invites you to explore this fast-growing domain where biology and robotics collide.
This 4hr workshop will take participants from any skill level through what it takes to be a researcher on the forefront of soft robotics. Workshop activities include:
- Learning from actual robot designers about the state of the art of soft robotics
- Building your own inflatable robotic actuators
- Mixing and matching different fields to come up with bioinspired designs
- Learning tools to go from idea to prototype to product faster than ever before
