Cometh the cyborg: Improved integration of living muscles into robots

Now, in a study reported in the journal Science Robotics, researchers at The University of Tokyo Institute of Industrial Science have overcome these problems by developing a new method that progresses from individual muscle precursor cells, to muscle-cell-filled sheets, and then to fully functioning skeletal muscle tissues.

They incorporated these muscles into a biohybrid robot as antagonistic pairs mimicking those in the body to achieve remarkable robot movement and continued muscle function for over a week.

For this, they used hydrogel sheets containing muscle precursor cells called myoblasts, holes to attach these sheets to the robot skeleton anchors, and stripes to encourage the muscle fibers to form in an aligned manner.

Japanese engineers integrate living muscles into robots

WASHINGTON, May 30 (Xinhua) -- Japanese engineers have developed a dexterous cyborg by integrating living muscle tissue into robots, according to a study published on Wednesday in the journal Science Robotics.

Researchers at The University of Tokyo Institute of Industrial Science developed a new method that could turn individual muscle precursor cells to muscle-cell-filled sheets, and then to fully functioning skeletal muscle tissues.

They incorporated these muscles into a biohybrid robot as antagonistic pairs mimicking those in the body to achieve remarkable robot movement and continued muscle function for over a week, according to the study.

Scientists Uncover Way To Integrate Living Muscle Into Machines To Create A 'Biohybrid' Robot

Researchers have developed a way to integrate living muscle into machines to create a biohybrid robot.

They were able to incorporate these muscles into a biohybrid robot as antagonistic pairs mimicking those in the body to achieve remarkable robot movement and continued muscle function for over a week.

For the living muscle part of the robot, they used hydrogel sheets containing muscle precursor cells called myoblasts, holes to attach these sheets to the robot skeleton anchors, and stripes to encourage the muscle fibers to form in an aligned way.

Measuring less than one millimeter thick, the e-skins also feature a circuit configuration with a slew of miniature ICmeaning they can be stretched and conformed onto the dynamic surface like human skin or soft robots.
