Scientists have started demonstrating how a new sets of will be build. The will be entirely different from the already demonstrated ones.
There will a quick shift of attention in the making of the rigid types of made with metals to another sets made with soft and flexible materials. A made by revealed how the engineers intend to achieve this new idea.
Flexible robots can make use of leather, plastics or rubber material as its major parts for mobility. The samples released in the video illustrate robots made with thick and highly dense flexible materials. The idea behind such is to mimic the water creatures known to make use of flexible parts as such can make the robots move in water unnoticed by the aquatic creatures.
Besides, a simple test conducted with such showed that their body is unbreakable even when accidentally climb them. Elastic property of the robots’ body make it impossible to be broken under intense vibrations.
The engineers behind the new move believe the use of flexible components could improve in the making humanoids’ fingers, neck and toes, etc. An idea believed to be the future of .
Rubber, leather and plastic related materials are currently undergoing intense experiment to access how perfect they can operate and be used in in the making of future AI robots. The idea will be to help such robots become lighter and easier to operate since most parts made with metals can be replaced with such material.
The sample robots made with such material seems to have few engine parts because the use of rope or string can control the remaining parts of the robot reducing the need for inclusion of extra metallic part. Hence, it made them simpler, and more flexible yet unbreakable. Above all, it offered lighter weight to the robots which helps in reducing the size of needed to move the parts of the leading to total reduction in the cost of their production.
The light-weight offered in such enables them to swim inside the water down at any depth effectively. Their control while inside water may not be noticed by fishes and dangerous aquatic lives.
