The Artificial Muscle Man

Posted 11 Oct 2003 at 02:25 UTC by steve Share This

A new CNN Technology article offers an overview of efforts by NASA's Yoseph Bar-Cohen to promote development of Electroactive Polymers (EAP) as artificial muscles. Bar-Cohen has long proposed an arm wrestling contest that pits a human against a robot arm powered by EAP muscles. He may finally be able to stage the first real contest in 2005 thanks to continuing advances in EAP. For more info, see our story from last year on Bar-Cohen's project.
