Researchers say carbon nanotube muscles beat nature

11/15/2012 | TechNewsDaily.com

An international group of researchers led by Ray Baughman of the University of Texas at Dallas has successfully created small artificial muscles that are 200 times as strong as human muscle fibers of the same size. Scientists heated twisted ropes of carbon nanotubes that were filled with materials to get the muscles to contract. Researchers say their innovation could be used to endow robots with facial expressions that look more natural.
