Easy as an inkjet, a new soft printing technique has opened the way for pixelated elastics

May 26, 2022

Borrowing from inkjet printers, Princeton Engineering researchers have rolled out a pixel-by-pixel technique to program and print composite elastic materials. It could be used for applications in soft robotics to create octopus-inspired camouflage or in medical devices to sense fine detail in vulnerable spaces.
