Soft Robotics Podcast

What we do

This podcast is dedicated to the (soft) robotics community and audience who are interested in (soft)robotics technology. We interview guests from both academia and industry where we discuss their latest research besides highlighting the challenges that face robotics in the academic and industrial worlds. Since technology should interact with not only scientists, we are also interviewing philosophers, kids, and laypeople how they feel and think about robotics.
