Scientists develop biological muscle-like smart textile

A team of biomedical engineers in Australia have developed a smart textile which incorporates artificial “muscles”, in the hopes that it will revolutionise the future of soft robotics and wearable exoskeletons.

The team demonstrated the shape-morphing flexibility of the material to Reuters, with models of a butterfly and flower made from the textile, performing complex motions in their lab. Team leader Thanh Nho Do is thinking bigger, believing that he and his team could even use the material to create a human smart suit. Read more at TVP World.
