25_02/2013Composite Materials: Robotic Tentacles with Three-Dimensional Mobility Based on Flexible Elastomers (Adv. Mater. 2/2013)

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.
