Article

Biohybrid robotics combines engineered artificial structures and living bio-systems. The main motivation for biohybrid robots is to provide actuation using bio-hybrid actuators. Biohybrid robots may use bacteria or other motile cells. Actuators have also been based on explanted whole-muscle tissues, cardiomyocytes, optogenetically modified cardiomyocytes, insect self-contractile tissues and engineered skeletal muscle.
