According to researchers, these robots can be used to do dangerous, dirty, or dull work. They can also be used to help keep astronauts safe and productive while in space and other planetary bodies.
When we think about robots, the first thing that comes to mind is a metal built bulky human-like body with a signature movement style. But researchers are working on a new type of innovative, ‘soft’ robot. Soft robotics, as the name suggests, will help build robots with different material composition that will change the way they move. We’re only going to be talking about human-like robots here.
