If you need to hold the insect rodeo, then the robotic tentacle will handle tiny and fragile objects. It capturing the ant without developed by the Jaeyoun Kim from the Lowa state university and the colleagues, this will curl itself to the circle with the radius of 200 micrometers. It is very thanks to the microtube structure and also fabricated from the kind of the polymer is called the elastomer. The existing robots has inspired by the animal’s tentacles are larger and since this will be tricky for reproducing a spiraling motion at the small scale. A smallest design is currently centimeter sized. A tentacle is able to grasp an egg of the fish is called as the capelin. These deform and also burst them if handled by the tweezers. The miniature soft robots would be useful for the microsurgery. A lassoing motion and the low force which is exerted by a tentacle would be the benefit in the endovascular operations.
Ask the typical robot to pick up the delicate object as well as this is likely to crush a thing in between the clumsy metal mitts. This is why the George Whitesides and the collegues at the Harvard University have developed the series of the soft robots with the lightest touch. This latest creation is the robotic tentacle which will twist around the flower without damaging this. A tentacle made from the flexible plastic that containing 3 air channels which run with an entire limb. The pumping air to the channels causes a tentacle to bend and permitting this to curl around the objects with the light grip. Splitting a air channel to the multiple sections lets separate the parts of a tentacle bend in the various directions and producing the full three dimensional range of the movement.
