Robotic technologies are coming closer into our everyday life. Unlike conventional robots with metal body and rigid joints, robots used in everyday life must have a form factor that considers usability as well as functionality. Designing a robot with soft body will enable robots to be more human-friendly, but there are several challenges. I will share some general thoughts and strategies for designing soft robots and how embodied intelligence can enable simple yet intelligent design of robots to be used in everyday life.
