Soft Robotic Manipulation and Locomotion with a 3D Printed Electroactive Hydrogel.

Electroactive hydrogels (EAH) that exhibit large deformation in response to an electric field have received great attention as a potential actuating material for soft robots and artificial muscle. However, their application has been limited due to the use of traditional two-dimensional (2D) fabrication methods. Here we present soft robotic manipulation and… CONTINUE READING
