Soft Robot Inspired by 450Million-year-old Organism

😎 New DIY robot kits

Many robots we cover are inspired by nature. Most of them modeled after animals and insects that are not extinct. Carnegie Mello University researchers have come up with a soft robotic replica of pleurocystitids, which is a marine organism that existed nearly 450m years ago.
