Scientists from universities have found a new of creating artificial muscles. They called their a "soft robot". It weighs 2.6 and looks like a small water- bag. An -inspired framework gives it support and . This means it can lift 1,000 times its own weight. This is like a baby lifting a four-wheel-drive car. The ground-breaking discovery could benefit many of science and medicine.
The scientists work in the of soft robotics. Their muscle takes 10 minutes to make and costs than a dollar. A hopes to create "softer" robots that are like . He said: "Humans are soft and brittle compared to the industrial robots….The next is to take this and develop it into a fully functional robot." It could be like the human - strong enough to grip an , while being soft and gentle.
