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

Japanese company that does soft 3D models, particularly of organs for training doctors. Recently famous for doing a tie-up with a maternity clinic to convert ultrasound scans of fetus' into a 3D model for doting pregnant mothers, for around $2K a pop, or $500 for the just the face of the fetus. Suitable as cellphone strap charms of course...
