Artificial Muscle Finds Use In Robots

  1. May 31, 2006 #1
    Technology Review recently produced a video documentary on work being done with artificial muscles and its potential application to robotics and possibly toys as well. It is an interesting video with scientific background information into how the artificial muscle is actually made, and how it can improve current robots and other medical and engineering related devices. It seems the materials being used to make the artificial muscle will be much lighter and take up less energy and space to work, and will also make any movements by the robots more fluid.

    Check out the documentary here:

    Great link, DigEagle. I copied it over to Universe Man's thread about prosthetics in the Biology section. Very interesting stuff.
