Bid Farewell To The Cold! 3D Printing Soft Octopus Robot
3D printing technology, which belongs to a kind of rapid prototyping technology, it is a digital model of a file, the use of powdered metal or plastic material can be bonded to construct an object layer by layer stacking cumulative way technology. The past is often in the mold manufacturing, industrial design and other fields are used to manufacture the model, is gradually used for direct manufacturing of some products. Especially some high value applications (such as hip or teeth, or some parts of the plane) has been using this technology to print into parts, means "the popularity of 3D printing technology".
3D printing model
Mention of a 3D print we tend to think that the hard metal, cold, Harvard University recently launched a soft robot named Octobot, its appearance looks like an octopus. All Octobot body material selection is a flexible material, and made use of 3D printing. The robot is not using a hard material, the cost is very low, less than $3.
Octopus robot 3D printing
Octobot is only the size of the palm, does not need electricity can start automatically. Octobot is not the electronic circuit, so there is no need to use electricity. Maybe you want to ask, how to move electricity? In fact, Octobot will react to produce large amounts of gas, the accumulation of gas compression, the pressure inside the robot changes, so as to realize the mechanical movement.
