One of the goals of soft robotics is to implement intel-ligent functions capable of processing complex information in soft materials. This is a noble goal, and we already have a familiar example, albeit not an artificial one, in a living organism. We believe that the in-telligent biological elements acquired through the evo-lutionary process, which do not require an electric-ity supply or CPU, can be used for soft robotics. In this letter, we introduce three biological elements: pro-teins, squid, and nematodes, which show temporal or special patterns. We then discuss an attempt to apply them to soft robotics.
