    Soft machines and robots are capable of moving, jumping and gripping objects thanks to soft, inflatable segments called fluidic actuators. These actuators require large amounts of air or water to change shape, making the machines slow, bulky and difficult to untether but researchers have engineered a new, soft actuator that harnesses the power of instability to trigger instantaneous movement.[​IMG]
