Biofabricated soft robots and inflatables by Marisa Satsia

What does molecular gastronomy and biofabrication have in common and what do these techniques have to do with the fabrication of soft robots? 

Through this project Marisa Satsia would like to continue her research of bringing molecular gastronomy and biofabrication techniques into the making of soft robots and inflatables. She will be exploring and working with natural polymers, cooking up and inflating biomaterials and experimenting with different fusing and sealing techniques.

During PIFcamp, she is eager to collaborate with others and potentially integrate her research with someone else’s work – she is especially interested in teaming up with individuals who have electronics skills or share similar interests. If you are interested, please feel free to join in!
