Make : soft robotics : a DIY introduction to squishy, stretchy, and flexible robots

Author: Matthew Borgatti; Kari Love; Christopher G Atkeson
Publisher: San Francisco, CA : Maker Media, Inc., 2018. ©2018
Series: Make (Maker Media, Inc.)
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : First edition
Summary:
Soft robotics is an emerging field that approaches robots in new ways, enabling them to operate in environments that are unstructured or unstable and to perform tasks that require delicacy and malleability. It's all about engineering with soft materials -- silicone, cloth, balloons, flexible plastics -- and combining them in different ways to come up with novel, approachable, and surprising solutions to interesting  Read more...
