Soft robots: A methodology based on embedded pneumatic networks (PneuNets) is described that enables large-amplitude actuations in soft elastomers by pressurizing embedded channels. Examples include a structure that can change its curvature from convex to concave, and devices that act as compliant grippers for handling fragile objects (e.g., a chicken egg).
