  • RE: Hydraulically amplified self-healing electrostatic actuators with muscle-like performance

    Please allow me to suggest a potential application for soft actuators: variable-focus eyeglasses as an alternative to multi-focus hard lenses. Key components would be a soft lens, a soft actuator to vary focal length and sensor to detect wearer's target distance. I expect that actuator development will improve power requirements.
