Soft 3D printed robots are nothing new but making them is not cheap. Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a new method to create soft, flexible 3D printed robots with flexoskeletons. The idea is to start with a soft body and add rigid features to it.

The design is inspired by insect exoskeletons that have both soft and rigid parts.
