Soft Robotics are highly flexible, lightweight systems can accomplish tasks and missions that would be unimaginable by their rigid counterparts due to their soft, deformable materials. In this studio, we will conceive and fabricate the next species of soft robots to enhance people’s everyday life using programmable materials, pneumatic actuators, and bioplastics, we will conceive and fabricate the next species of soft robots.


We will always love the monkey bars and slides at parks, but playground structures are beginning to be reimagined to encourage users of different ages and abilities tocustomize their play experiences through exploration.
