Humanoid robots a ‘strong’ step closer with synthetic muscle that can lift 1,000 times its own weight

Humanoid robots are a ‘strong’ step closer after engineers developed synthetic muscle that can lift a thousand times its own weight. The 3D-printable synthetic soft muscle, which doesn’t need an external compressor or high voltage equipment as previous attempts required, also has a strain density –¬†expansion per gram – FIFTEEN times larger than natural muscle. … Continue reading Humanoid robots a ‘strong’ step closer with synthetic muscle that can lift 1,000 times its own weight
