These soft robots are inspired by plants and move like sentient vines


From The Verge:

A thick tendril snakes its way across a desk. It turns sharply, heading up to wrap its single, tube-like appendage around a valve that moves slowly under its pressure. Though it looks like the work of a sentient vine, it’s actually a robot: a soft, plant-inspired creation that “grows” as a form of movement.
