These microactuators and soft robotic devices are wirelessly activated by laser beams. As Berna Ozkale, the study’s lead author, explains:

Our soft actuators contract rapidly and efficiently when activated by near-infrared light. When the entire nanoscale actuator network contracts, it tugs on the surrounding device components and powers the machinery
