Researchers at Harvard have created a tentacle-like gripper that can grasp irregularly shaped or soft objects without damaging them.
Wearable robots are ready to leave the lab, says Harvard researcher Conor Walsh
In his RoboBusiness Direct session, recognized Harvard University professor Conor Walsh will examine how his team or researchers have developed soft, wearable robotics for industrial use.
3D printed organs get SWIFT vascularized building blocks at Wyss Institute
Sacrificial ink-writing technique developed at Harvard allows 3D printed organs to include large, vascularized building blocks.
Jellyfish unharmed by new soft robotic underwater gripper
A new ultra-soft underwater gripper developed at Harvard’s Wyss Institute safely catches and releases jellyfish without damage.
Snake-inspired robot uses kirigami for swifter slithering
A new programmable metamaterial using kirigami, the Japanese art of paper folding, can more efficiently change its shape to crawl, said Harvard researchers.
Heart failure devices: This amazing new robot could be the future
A new customizable robotic heart sleeve has demonstrated potential when it comes to aiding the beating of a failing heart, according to the Harvard University and Boston Children’s Hospital researchers who developed it. The researchers claim that the soft robot has advantages over the heart assist devices such as VADs that are out there because…
MIT Develops Robotic Paper That Folds Itself Into Origami
Researchers at Harvard and MIT have reshaped the landscape of programmable matter by devising self-folding sheets that rely on the ancient art of origami. Called programmable matter by folding, the team demonstrated how a single thin sheet composed of interconnected triangular sections could transform itself into a boat- or plane-shape—all without the help of skilled […]
