Robotic gripping mechanism mimics how sea anemones catch prey: The doughnut-shaped, plastic rubber device crimps its skin to latch onto anything from cloth to beakers filled with liquid

Researchers demonstrated a robotic gripping mechanism that mimics how a sea anemone catches its prey. The bionic torus captures and releases objects by crimping its skin. The grasper not only is relatively cheap and easy to produce but also can grab a variety of objects of different sizes, shapes, weights and materials.
