Here is a cool technology inspired by NASA that turns soft objects into robots. As Yale researchers explain, the robotic skins have embedded actuators and sensors. They are removable and transferable. These robotic skins are modular, so they can combine to achieve complex motion.

These robotic skins can be used on stuffed animals, foam tubes, and other soft objects. They can be wrapped around the body to track posture.
