Flubber Robot {May} Explore This Technology Development

Read exclusive reviews unavailable elsewhere about the latest invention of Flubber Robot. Also, learn how it could benefit humans.

What do you mean by Flubber? The term Flubber comes from a United States Film Flubber launched in 1997 as a Si-Fi genre and gained viewership in the United Kingdom. In the film, Flubber is shown as an intelligent being made out of flexible material, small in size, transformable in different shapes, etc. It was invented by Professor Philip Brainard (Actor Robin Williams) from the Medfield College. 

A similar invention was made recently. Let’s check about Flubber Robot below.

About Flubber Bot:

The Flubber bot was showcased on the internet between late March 2022 and early April 2022. Dr Karan Raj demonstrated its properties in a TikTok video in the month of April.

A Flubber bot is a semi-liquid substance that has magnetic properties. In trials, sometimes, it behaved like liquid and sometimes like solid. It has a consistency of custard, which can be squeezed through small holes. 

Due to its magnetic property, the Flubber bot can be inserted into the body of a subject. It can be controlled by an external magnet for navigation.

How Flubber Robot originated?

The aim of the Professor in the Flubber film was to make a substance that provides some form of energy. He accidentally invented a jelly that is super bouncy. The Professor decides to help his college basketball team based on its bouncy properties. The Jelly also had self-awareness and helped the Professor in many ways.

Recently, scientists had invented a jelly that has magnetic properties! Similar to the concept of Flubber, the Jelly is targeted to help humans. Hence, the latest invention of magnetic Jelly became popular as Flubber. The Flubber Robot can be used to grab nearby objects, move them, damage them, destroy them or cut through them.

The Flubber bot could be a breakthrough in health technology, as the Flubber bot can be used during surgeries to move or trap objects.

Development of Flubber bot technology:

The Flubber bot can form the shape of ‘C’, which has an opening at one end and a semi-circular shape. It helps in trapping objects in the centre of ‘C’ to move them. However, the magnet itself has negative effects on the human body. Therefore, the Flubber bot was covered in silica to reduce its ill effects.

The scientists are working on the development of Flubber Robot technology to benefit medical technology and surgeries. It is not yet determined on which body part Flubber bot can be used, or objects can be trapped by Flubber bot technology.


In various trials, the Flubber bot is ascertained to travel through narrow gaps due to its semi-liquid property, flexibility and ability to change shapes. It can be controlled by an external magnet making it cost-effective. The scientists are in the process of determining how long a Flubber bot can be induced safely and how to deploy it as a Robot.
