The robot arm and soft mechanical grippers influenced from our hands that we can safely grasp and sample delicate sea creatures.

According to Interesting Engineering, “the scientists at the Wyss Institute, Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), Baruch College, and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study found a solution to this by developing a robotic gripper that is soft and flexible, making it easier for it to grab samples of ocean life without compromising it.”
