A series of experiments with soft-robotics.
The objects are made out of a flexible silicone that stretches and grows when air pressure is applied.
They are programmed to inflate and deflate via a mini air pump connected to Arduino.
These inflatables could be implemented in an interactive wearable that not only would change the shape of the body or some parts of it, but that would also apply a pressure on the skin, thus giving physical stimuli to the wearer.
This is still an ongoing research on material and design.
