Adaptive soft materials that can autonomously or programmably change their shapes are of significant recent interest due to their broad applications. On page 1541 John A. Rogers, Hanqing Jiang , and co-workers combine compliant electrode arrays in open-mesh constructs with hydrogels to yield a class of soft actuator, capable of complex, programmable changes in shape.
