Study of Seahorses Could Lead to Better Robot Arms

The images on the left show how seahorse skeletons are made of highly articulated bony plates that surround a central vertebral column. One the right are the bending and twisting performance of 3D printed prototypes. (Photo credit: UC San Diego.)

Researchers studying seahorse tails believe the novel design might be useful for building better robot grippers and medical devices. According to the team, a tail made of square, overlapping segments makes for better armor than a cylindrical tail. It’s also better at gripping and grasping. “Almost …
