3D-Printed Pneumatic Quadruped Robot Adapts to Rough Terrain

In the world of robotics, researchers are going soft – in their designs at least. Soft robots have some advantages over their more rigid brethren but till now, they've not been able to do much other than wriggle around. An advance from UC San Diego has changed that by creating a bot with a firm body and soft legs that can wander over difficult ground like sand or pebbles...
