A way different type of robot…

Robot without a skeleton inspired by squid, crawls on land

This really intrigued me and thought readers here (all two of you, or is that too many?) would also find it interesting. I have been reading for years about pneumatic ‘effectors’ and how they had potential to dramatically increase the capability of robots, but this is the first time where I read there is a substantial software component involved. Perhaps that indicates the field has finally matured to the point where people start to give it serious enough consideration to find issues that need to be resolved.

This would be cool research to work on! Of course, it probably pays pennies compared to my work in the IC, too bad I am trapped in these golden handcuffs!
