😎 New DIY robot kits

It is no secret that living organisms possess hard and soft parts (bones & muscles) to have flexibility but also resiliency. It makes sense to build a robot with such components to adapt to its environment. John Rieffel and Jean-Baptiste Mouret have published a paper and video that explore this idea.

These soft tensegrity robots are capable of dynamic locomotive gaits. They are easy to assemble and don’t break easily.
