Robots are becoming more sophisticated all the time. In the future, we can rely on soft, inflatable robots to get things done. This video from American Chemical Society shows new soft robots that can grab objects or walk.
These robots can get flattened and bounce back into shape. When they inflate, their silicone-based material stretches. Upon deflation, you will see where the device is strained and could be vulnerable to rupturing. More info is available at the link below.
