The Right Trousers @ EAPAD 2018

Dr Tim Helps from the University of Bristol team was at the Electroactive Polymers and Devices (EAPAD) conference presenting the team’s research on Electroactive Gel artificial muscles. These muscles are made from a special kind of jelly which exhibits fascinating anodophilic behaviour. This means they “love” the anode (positive electrode), and crawl towards it whenContinue reading “The Right Trousers @ EAPAD 2018”

Research Paper on 3D-Printed Variable-Stiffness Structures is now available online

We’re pleased to announce that Dr Majid Taghavi and the University of Bristol team’s paper on 3D-printable variable stiffness structures has been published in the journal IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters! These new materials can be 3D-printed into any shape, and by applying electricity to them they can be transitioned from being strong and stiffContinue reading “Research Paper on 3D-Printed Variable-Stiffness Structures is now available online”
