Graphene Helps A Robot Creep Like An Inchworm
Whether building robots that move like insects or fish, or designing medical implants with moving parts, researchers look for new materials that respond to electricity but are flexible and soft. To meet that need, Chinese scientists have developed graphene-based actuators that convert electricity into motion (ACS Nano, DOI: 10.1021/nn3006812).
