Robotic Multifilament Muscles In Action

Today, if you mention the word “robot”, images of motors and servos will often come to mind to many people. But perhaps a better model of articulation is found in our own bodies, in our linear muscle structure. In this robotic example we find a robot with multifilament muscle actuators that closely model our own muscles. The robot was constructed by Suzumori Endo Lab of Tokyo Institute of Technology.
