Professor Kaspar Althoefer was interviewed about his research on soft robotics for robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery.

"We wanted to take our inspiration from biology – so octopus tentacles were our inspiration....making something that was made of soft materials, to achieve more dexterous behaviour but also to increase patient safety."
