Advancements in robotics take place every day as the field grows, matures, and develops products over a wide range of industries. Soft robots are not there yet. Their development hinges on materials that can be folded, stretched, or otherwise formed into different lengths, widths and shapes. The potential of pliant, elastic robots is great and researchers are building myriad examples that may eventually find their way into medicine, manufacturing, aeronautics and other industries. Take this short quiz on soft robotic history and development.
