Soft material for soft actuators | Nature Communications
An ethanol infused 3D printed silicone matrix apparently makes for a pretty good soft actuator that requires low activation energy, but it is effectively thermal based, which makes environmental conditions and position holding a pain

UPSポスター 最終 アウトライン-- - 20151130.pdf
Weird unpowered exo (unpowered suit or UPS) using foot air pump to directly manipulate a compressing gel muscle actuator. If you had a low pressure pneumatic accumulator to collect foot pump power and some valving this might be interesting. I wonder if TALOS integrates something like this?

INNOPHYS - 株式会社イノフィス
Interesting new exoskeleton (in back support and back+arm support version) that uses pneumatic actuators and a small refillable compressed air tank. Intended for use where compressed air is available (like hospitals, warehouses, etc). There's some sort of weird mouth suction operated control (optional?) as well.

MYO - The Gesture Control Armband
Interesting hardware that tries to detect lower arm muscle contraction consistent with hand gestures as a means of handsfree gesture control. Bluetooth, but it looks like it needs gesture interpretation software so it isn't using a standard HID profile probably.

NASA - OCCAMS: Optically Controlled and Corrected Active Meta-material Space Structures
Wow, using photonic muscles embedded in a deployable thin film mirror, using a raster scanning laser to tweak the mirror as an active optical correction primary aperture mirror by using the muscles to deform the mirror. But, the concept suspiciously looks similar to a stealth radar deflection cone for spysats patented by Teledyne Ryan and allegedly used on Misty 1/2 and NROL-15.

University of Rhode Island Make Transgenic Trout that are Myostatin Unhibited So They Have 20% More Meat for Better Aquaculture
I can understand the desire for a higher protein yield in commercial land based aquaculture, but seriously. These fish look like muscle bound gym freaks. People are definitely not going to be buying these fish whole at the supermarket. A secondary issue is that the increased muscle fiber count without a corresponding increase in muscle fats will make the meat lean (which may be a good or a bad thing, depending on the way you prepare fish for consumption). And lord have mercy is these GM trout ever get loose.
