Thanks to 'flexoskeletons,' these insect-inspired robots are faster and cheaper to make
Publication/Creation DateApril 8 2020
DescriptionEngineers at The University of California San Diego's Jacobs School of Engineering have developed a new method of creating soft, flexible, 3D-printed robots, known as Flexoskeletons. The new method allows for the construction of soft components for robots. The Flexoskeletons are made from 3D printing a rigid material on a thin sheet that acts as a flexible base. They are printed with various features that increase rigidity in specific areas, which combine softness and rigidity for movement and support.
