Intelligent Liquid Integrated Functional Entity: A Basic Way to Innovate Future Advanced Biomimetic Soft Robotics
Tian-Ying Liu, Peng Qin, Jing Liu
There exists a big gap in capabilities between modern robots and animals in nature. In article number 1900017, Prof. Jing Liu and co‐workers conceived a generalized principle, termed as Intelligent Liquid Integrated Functional Entity (I‐LIFE), to innovate future biomimetic soft robots. This is based on considering that liquid is a most essential component for creatures to generate profound functions. The potentials of liquids to revolutionize robots from motion, energy, material tuning, sensing to intelligence aspects were expounded. This I‐LIFE sowed seeds for designing future ever‐advanced unconventional robots.
