Octopus Robot


I’m not going to lie. When I heard about it… I thought it was a joke. What use could a tentacle arm possibly have? Then, the European Robotics Commission funds the project and I take it a bit more seriously

But what exactly is the appeal of having an octopus? The conceptual design for the robot includes the ability to squeeze through a small pipe by collapsing its body to a tiny cylinder, just like a real octopus. Furthermore, the project aims to mimic other useful things that octopi can do, like grasp objects dynamically and change color to match their surroundings.
