(3Ders.org)  Researchers from American, Japanese, and Korean universities are pioneering a technique for creating 3D printed soft robotic devices. The emerging field of soft robotics, however, is beginning to embrace new, flexible robotic materials, designed to open up a new world of technological possibilities.
One important goal for many soft roboticists is the creation of robotic muscles, which could someday be used to create realistic and functional prosthetic limbs, amongst other things. It is hoped that the technology could someday be used to create realistic robotic muscles.
