Use Case: Jamming Hand
Jamming is when objects get crowded and jammed together.
As shown in the video, we put coffee grounds inside a balloon and used a vacuum pump to remove the air inside.
Then, the space that existed among the coffee grounds was eliminated and the grounds couldn’t move inside the balloon because they were jammed together. Conversely, when the air was added, the space among the grounds was re-created, and the grounds could move freely.
The Jamming Hand uses this phenomenon to grasp and release objects.
