Airics_arm is a robot arm with artificial bones and muscles.
A total of 30 muscles move the bone structure which, as with
our own arms, consists of ulna and radius, metacarpal and finger
bones, a shoulder joint and a shoulder bone-joints that are otherwise
not encountered in this formin the world of technology. Airics
bones have not grown of their own accord, nor do they automatic-
ally heal following a fracture. They were designed on computer
and are grown in a three-dimensional polyamide structure using a
state-of-the-art laser sintering process. The muscles, a product of
Festo, are already widely found in industrial application under the
name of Fluidic Muscles. These are tubes of elastomer reinforced
with aramide fibres. When a Fluidic Muscle is filled with compressed
air, its diameter increases and it is simultaneously shortened.
