Lumedusa is an intelligent micro-robotic wearable living sculpture.
Lumedusa is an hydra/squid-like creature with six tentacles that lives in a pendant containing its aqueous solution.
Lumedusa will be approximately 4-5 mm across when fully assembled. Lumedusa is designed so that it can be micro-machined as a flat device and then folded up into a 3-dimensional robot using its EAP actuators.
Lumedusa’s body will be composed of silicon plates connected by poly-pyrrol(PPy) micro-actuators and illuminated by poly-pyrrol(PPy) LED’s.
Lumedusa will be tethered to its pendant via a flexible umbilical cord used to communicate with its brain, a micro-controller built into the back of the pendant.
