Scientists design material that can store energy like an eagle's grip

Scientists at Queen Mary University of London and University of Cambridge have used 3D printing to create materials that store energy like eagles’ talons as they grip prey. Known as auxetics, the materials collapse in on themselves when compressed rather than bulging outwards, allowing energy to be stored within the structures. Auxetics have recently been […] The post Energy storing 3D-printed materials mimic eagle’s grip appeared first on The Engineer.

Scientists design material that can store energy like an eagle's grip

What do a flea and an eagle have in common? They can store energy in their feet without having to continuously contract their muscles to then jump high or hold on to prey. Now scientists at ...

Material with eagle-like grasp could lead to grippier robot hands

Most materials bulge out when you squeeze them, pushing the energy outside. But that's not always what you want -- wouldn't it sometimes be better for them to collapse and ...

New material design stores energy like an eagle

Auxetics are materials that store energy internally rather than bulging out. In this way they can store more energy when squeezed or struck and disperse it more regularly. Historically, however, ...
