Human vs. Robot Arm Wrestling

Posted 21 Feb 2003 at 23:47 UTC by steve Share This

The Salt Lake Tribune is running an article on polymer muscles. It centers around the challenge made to the engineering community in 1996 by NASA's Yoseph Bar-Cohen to develop a robot arm actuated by polymer muscles that could beat a human at arm wrestling. No one has done it yet but a lot of progress has been made on polymer materials. For more info on polymer muscles visit NASA's WorldWide Electroactive Polymer Actuators Webhub.
