The knitted fabric surrounds small, elastic air chambers along the robot arm. The chambers are activated by compressed air and can fold together or expand like an accordion, thus moving the arm. At this point, the textile covering of the air chambers comes into play: based on the muscle fibres of the octopus, the elastic and rigid strands run around the chambers in a special pattern. By this means, the textile structure determines at which places the robot arm extends and thus develops power, and at which ones extension is prevented. In this way, the BionicMotionRobot can move both powerfully and quickly as well as softly and precisely
