“The Soft Robotics Toolkit is a collection of shared resources to support the design, fabrication, modeling, characterization, and control of soft robotic devices. The toolkit was developed as part of educational research being undertaken in the Harvard Biodesign Lab. The ultimate aim of the toolkit is to advance the field of soft robotics by allowing designers and researchers to build upon each other’s work. The toolkit includes an open source fluidic control board, detailed design documentation describing a wide range of soft robotic components (including actuators and sensors), and related files that can be downloaded and used in the design, manufacture, and operation of soft robots.”

Pretty cool stuff…

Other news

  • Kano Ships Its First 18,000 Learn-To-Code Computer Kits, Fueled By $1.5M Kickstarter
  • I saw at least seven Free Software projects listed on the Top 100 edu tools from an annual online survey: WordPress, Moodle, Wikipedia, Audacity, Mahara, OpenOffice and Firefox. I have to say that I don’t know most of the other items on the list and didn’t bother to check which of them might be Free Software as well.
