A Super Light 20 Meter Robot Arm Built Using Helium-Filled Inflatable Segments

The Giacometti Arm with Balloon Body is a super light 1.2kg 20 meter robot arm built from helium-filled inflatable segments connected by artificial muscles. The arm has a camera mounted at its end, which can be maneuvered for potential use in search and inspection applications. It was developed by the team at the Suzumori Endo Lab in Tokyo Institute of Technology.
