Pneumatic Blooms incorporates cutting-edge soft robotic research and development from leading technology institutes such as Harvard Biodesign Lab and Whitesides Research Group MIT. Soft robotics involve numerous STEM-relevant fields such as:

  • Mechanical engineering (pneumatics)
  • Electrical engineering (circuits, sensors, solenoids)
  • Physics (fluid dynamics, reaction forces)
  • Biomimicry and xenobiology
  • 3D design and fabrication
