Design and produce something with a digital fabrication process (incorporating computer-aided design and manufacturing) not covered in another assignment, documenting the requirements that your assignment meets, and including everything necessary to reproduce it.

Soft Robotics

Soft Robotics is the specific subfield of robotics dealing with constructing robots from highly compliant materials, similar to those found in living organisms.Soft robotics draws heavily from the way in which living organisms move and adapt to their surroundings. In contrast to robots built from rigid materials, soft robots allow for increased flexibility and adaptability for accomplishing tasks, as well as improved safety when working around humans.These characteristics allow for its potential use in the fields of medicine and manufacturing.

These robots are made with in build air cavities in them. The cavities will swell up when air is pumped through it.

This video helped me in understanding more about soft robotics.

I designed a soft gripper arm. I found a tutorial on instructables to create a soft robotic gripper
