There are lots of facilities made by steel or plastic in the gym. But what if they are made of paper?

Electro-ribbon actuators and electro-origami robots

With electricity, liquid and paper, this could work!

Scientists have found out that easily made electro-ribbon actuators could lift weights as human muscles can do. It only takes a piece of flexible material(plastic, paper, etc.) and liquid inside. What’s more, the actuators can shorten by more than 99% of their length. When it comes to product-level use, imagine that the whole gym lifting facilities are made of plastic or paper. Really low cost and definitely environmental-friendly! Fantastic!
