Lightweight Plastic Exoskeleton Raw Materials June 30, 2016

Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Science, Video.

When I worked (briefly) at SRI some twelve years ago, they were developing some stretched-polymer artificial muscles with pretty exotic chemistry. I am really pleased to see how much the field has advanced in the intervening years, probably due to adequate microprocessor-powered software algorithms to make a normal walking gait practical.  This particular polymeric muscle seems to be well on its way to application.
