From the Ted Talk by Giada Gerboni: The incredible potential of flexible, soft robots

Unscramble the Blue Letters

With my previous research gruop in Europe, we developed this soft camera robot for srgreuy, which is very different from a classic endoscope, which can move thanks to the flexibility of the mudloe that can bend in every direction and also elongate. And this was actually used by surgeons to see what they were doing with other instruments from different points of view, without caring that much about what was touched around. And here you see the soft robot in action, and it just goes inside. This is a body simulator, not a real human body. It goes around. You have a lghit, because usually, you don't have too many ltghis inside your body.

Original Text

With my previous research group in Europe, we developed this soft camera robot for surgery, which is very different from a classic endoscope, which can move thanks to the flexibility of the module that can bend in every direction and also elongate. And this was actually used by surgeons to see what they were doing with other instruments from different points of view, without caring that much about what was touched around. And here you see the soft robot in action, and it just goes inside. This is a body simulator, not a real human body. It goes around. You have a light, because usually, you don't have too many lights inside your body.
