Ramses V. Martinez, Jamie L. Branch, Carina R. Fish, Lihua Jin, Robert F. Shepherd, Rui M. D. Nunes, Zhigang Suo and George M. Whitesides Composite Materials: Robotic Tentacles with Three-Dimensional Mobility Based on Flexible Elastomers (Adv. Mater. 2/2013) Advanced Materials 25
The front cover image illustrates a soft robotic tentacle with a textured surface fabricated by composing flexible elastomers using soft lithographic molding. These soft tentacles can manipulate delicate objects and house functional components that extend their capabilities (for example, a video camera). More details can be found in the article by George M. Whitesides and co-workers on page 205.
