Flexible Robot Comes with Camouflage
A new flexible, color-shifting “soft robot” microfluidics networks – super small, interconnected fluid channels that can hold either gas or liquid –control color and pattern changes as well as movement, which create camouflage. The networks, embedded in sheets of silicon, are placed on the surface of soft robots. The research was done in the lab of George Whitesides at Harvard, and were inspired by nature, but published in Science.
