Even the most advanced robots come nowhere near the grasping ability of animals when dealing with objects of varying shapes, sizes and textures.

Thanks to new technology that enables them to create simple tools, robots may be on the verge of their own version of the Stone Age.

Researchers will use self-healing materials and machine learning to develop soft robotics as part of a new collaborative project.

As a source of inspiration, aquatic creatures such as fish, cetaceans, and jellyfish could inspire innovative designs to improve the ways that manmade systems operate in and interact with aquatic environments. Jellyfishes in nature propel themselves through their surroundings by radially expanding and contracting their bell-shaped bodies to push water behind them, which is called jet propulsion.
