Researchers from the University of Tokyo have created a biohybrid robot, created on the basis of live rat muscle tissue and a frame made of metal and plastic. The device simulates the movement of the human finger, it is able to move small objects, bending in the joint, according to a study published in the journal Science Robotics.

The muscles of the robot shrink when an electric current is applied to them. The joint of the new robot can bend almost 90 degrees; this allows you to perform relatively complex tasks.
