Soft, Self-Healing Devices Mimic Biological Muscles, Point to Next Generation of Human-Like Robotics

A new class of soft, electrically activated devices is capable of mimicking the expansion and contraction of natural muscles. These devices, which can be constructed from a wide range of low-cost materials, are able to self-sense their movements and self-heal from electrical damage, representing a major advance in soft robotics.
