Soft Robots: Paper, Silicone, Cloth, and Rubber Bots for All Ages
Matthew Borgatti, Kari Love
Popularized by Baymax in the hit movie Big Hero 6, soft robotics is a big, fun field. More than just cloth or silicone robots, soft robotics is all about getting motion out of soft things--paper, silicone, cloth, springs, rubber hoses--all these and more can be combined in different ways to come up with comfortable, friendly, and familiar-feeling solutions to interesting problems. And they can be fun to play with, too. This book is about taking different materials, combining them, and remixing them with 3d printing, laser cutting, mold making, casting, and sewing to create soft robots.
