An untethered isoperimetric soft robot

Our research on isoperimetric soft robots was published in Science Robotics. This work presents a constant edge-length, inflatable, robotic truss capable of dramatic shape change and untethered operation. The research was conducted by Nathan S. Usevitch, Zachary M. Hammond, Mac Schwager, Allison M. Okamura, Elliot W. Hawkes, and Sean Follmer. Our robots were featured in Stanford News, The Current, IEEE Spectrum, CNN, Medium, Digital trends, Inverse, Syfy, TechRepublic, New Atlas, Unite AI, SlashGear, Core 77, heise, cnBeta, RSVN, Хайтек, and others.
