A research team has created artificial muscles with the potential to carry 80 times their own weight and extend to five times their original length when carrying a load. The team from the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) Faculty of Engineering believe their invention will pave the way for the construction of life-like robots with extraordinary strength. In addition, these novel artificial muscles could potentially convert and store energy, which could help the robots power themselves after a short period of charging.
