Disney’s Soft Robot Arm & Hand with Air-filled Impact Absorbing Modules

Robotic Gizmos

Robots are already working alongside humans. They have safety features to protect human workers. Disney’s soft robotic hand and arm system is also interesting. It is a 6 DOF arm with two air-filled force sensing modules that absorb impact passively. The arm has an inflated outer cover that encloses its mechanism.

The hand is 3D printed with air-filled, force-sensing fingertips. The above video shows how this robot arm can gently grasp items with its force sensing fingers.
