Soft Robots

OUCH! - Just being moved around is hard on the body! My friend and fellow roboticist, Carol Lynn Hazlett, has been in the hospital and really got bruised up. She is home now thank goodness, but it got me thinking of something I had seen...

This is exactly why real world researchers and roboticists, like these are from CMU, are trying to develop soft robots like Baymax from the Disney/Pixar film Big Hero 6. Here is a fastening video about that subject. Wow!

It is interesting that these roboticist seem sort of soft too - gentle and caring. Oh, and in case you forgot - we love Baymax (and Disney/Pixar at our house!
