Howonhigh res image.jpg Dancing Underwater Softbot
Rutgers engineers have created a 3D-printed smart gel that walks underwater and grabs objects and moves them. The watery creation could lead to soft robots that mimic sea animals, and may also lead to artificial heart, stomach, and other muscles, and devices for diagnosing diseases, detecting and delivering drugs, and performing underwater inspections. "[This project] has great potential in biomedical engineering because it resembles tissues in the human body," said Howon Lee, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
