Abstract: Bioactuation involves using biological components, such as muscle cells, to generate mechanical force. The applications for this technology include microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), actuators in small robots, and moving parts in any meso-scaled device. The advantages of fabricating an actuator from cells, rather than synthetic materials, are their ability to self-assemble, be powere... read more
