A research-intensive university with an entrepreneurial dimension, NUS is ranked consistently as one of the world's top universities.
A research team from the National University of Singapore's (NUS) Faculty of Engineering has created efficient artificial, or 'robotic' muscles, which could carry a weight 80 times its own and able to extend to five times its original length when carrying the load -- a first in robotics. The team's invention will pave the way for the constructing of life-like robots with superhuman strength and ability.

In addition, these novel artificial muscles could potentially convert and store energy, which could help the robots power themselves after a short period of charging.
