CSAIL engineers capture underwater footage with SoFi, a 3D printed soft robotic fish

Many exciting things have been achieved with 3D printing and soft robotics over the last few years, as the technologies combined allow for the production of a huge variety of different structural designs for all kinds of useful functions. The most recent breakthrough took place underwater at the Rainbow Reef in Fiji, where an innovative soft robotic fish was able to capture some unique footage of the marine depths. The robot was made by engineers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), partially using 3D printing technology. Known as SoFi, the robot was designed to swim alongside […]
