Electroactive Polymer (EAP) Robot Blimp

Electroactive Polymer (EAP) Powered Robot Blimp

This new robot blimp, powered by electroactive polymers (EAPs), comes from the Swiss Federal Labs for Materials Testing and Research (EMPA). It reminds me of the Festo Air Ray, and definitely ranks up there with other cool EAP robots like the Artificial Muscle EPAM variants previously discussed on Hizook.  Be sure to check out the video.

Originally located on the EMPA website, which has lots of other great EAP information!

Thanks to the folks at OpenMaterials.org for pointing this out to me.
