During the past decade soft robotics has emerged as a growing field of research. In this paper we present exploratory research on sound design for soft robotics with potential applications within the human-robot interaction domain. We conducted an analysis of the sounds made by imaginary soft creatures in movies. Drawing inspiration from the analysis, we designed a soft robotic prototype that features real-time sound generation based on FM synthesis.
