The Kid Should See This

Harvard’s Soft Robot Walking and Crawling

This isn’t like the robots we usually feature. This robot is soft and “boneless,” so to speak, like a squid, or starfish, or worms. Created by researchers at Harvard, this robot has multiple gaits (walking, crawling, and slithering), using pumped air to give it temporary “solid” states as it moves. 

The bonelessness gives this robot such a strange organic quality that more rigid robots don’t have. — Kids (and everyone else) should definitely see this!
