Columbia University engineers have developed a soft actuator that mimics natural muscle, but is three times ...

The classic image of a robot is one clad in a rigid metal shell, but that's not going to be practical in situations where man and machine will need to work together. The emerging field of soft robotics is helping to make that collaboration safer, but recreating muscle is no easy task. Now, mechanical engineers from Columbia University have developed a synthetic soft muscle that's much more simple to make and run than others, and is three times stronger than the real thing.
