Dr Adam Stokes is a specialist in soft robotics and spent some time speaking with Sky News about the future this technology. Soft robotics are changing the way that we interact with robots as they are created from pliable material which has strength, but won't cause damage. Dr Stokes is interested in " moving robots into something where people will be interested in interacting with them and they'll feel safe interacting with them" as this will change the way that people interact with robots.
Soft robotics can be used in many difference scenarios, from unstable earthquake environments to domestic applications. To find out more about how soft robotics are impacting how we interact with robots, please click on the full story below.
