King Louie, Engineering Soft Robots
See some of the work happening in the RAD (Robotics and Dynamics Laboratory) at BYU. These robots inflate, but they can do much more than a balloon. “If you look at typical robots in an industrial setting, they’re usually behind cages because when people get around robots they get injured a lot of times. That’s one of the main ideas here is that because he’s completely inflatable he won’t hurt you,” student Dustan Kraus. From Dr. Killpack, “Our goal is to have soft robots that can interact and work in peoples’ lives. We’re interested in soft robots that can actually help those with motor…
