Underwater organisms can be quite fragile, so scientists are always working on robots that can capture and handle them gently. As this video by Wyss Institute shows, soft grippers can now 3D printed on ships to sample different types of sea life.

The sampling device is soft, flexible, and customizable, so modifications can be made without researchers having to return to a land-based laboratory. Pretty neat, don’t you think?
