A Positive Pressure Universal Gripper Based on the Jamming of Granular Material

A Positive Pressure Universal Gripper Based on the Jamming of Granular Material @ Cornell Creative Machines Lab.

This video is a demonstration of the new shooting capabilities of a universal jamming gripper that also utilizes positive pressure. The benefits of this approach are described in our recent IEEE Transactions on Robotics paper.

This research is a collaboration between our lab at Cornell and the lab of Heinrich Jaeger at the University of Chicago.

  1. Cool! I think it took about a week for someone to make a DIY version of the negative pressure gripper, I wonder how long it will take to get one upgraded.

  2. So cool, I want my android to have one!
