Soft Robotics raises $23 million to conquer online returns

  • Robotics startup company Soft Robotics has closed it's Series B round of funding, raising a total of $23 milion led by Calibrate Ventrues, Material Impact, and FANUC - the world's largest maker of industrial robots.

  • Soft Robotics is focused on developing robotic grippers that use soft material endpoints that can more easily grip a range of different objects without the kind of extremely specific and complex programming that's required for most traditional robotic arms.
