This edible robot will save lives
Made in the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, the soft robot is made of gelatin and can be easily digested.
The robot’s gripper is capable of handling various objects. Combined with other recent edible materials and electronics, the innovation could revolutionize medicine.
So far the robot is tasteless, yet the researchers are working with the École hôtelière de Lausanne, a world-class hospitality school, to create better-tasting robots.
Maybe one day, we will go to a “Robot-restaurant” instead of the hospital to do a surgery without opening the body. Who want to try the Bone-fix-apple-crumble-robot?
