Summary

The paper introduces the concept of soft robotics to an audience of chemists, discussing promising applications of this technology as well as describing a particular set of prototypes of "soft robots" fabricated by the Whitesides group.

According to Whitesides, et al:

"The robotics community defines "soft robots" as: 1) machines made of soft—often elastomeric—materials, or 2) machines composed of multiple hard-robotic actuators that operate in concert, and demonstrate soft-robot-like properties..."
