Interview with Matthew Borgatti on The Setup

NewImage

The Setup has an interview posted up with Matthew Borgatti, lead scientist at Super-Releaser.

Who are you, and what do you do?

My name is Matthew Borgatti. I’m the lead scientist at the soft robotics R&D lab Super-Releaser. I build robots out of unusual materials like RTV casting silicone and seamless stretch knits to produce analogues of biological mechanisms. The overall goal is to turn ideas on how to solve engineering problems, like interfacing mechanisms with the human body and mass producing robots with complex motion, into practical technologies.

I also develop spacesuit components under a NASA subcontract. NASA wants to increase the flexibility of their suits while reducing their complexity, and it’s a great application for soft robotics.
