Can we make a sailboat that is articulated and inflatable at the same time? Yes Can we make a prototype that is simple and modular to test different size, shapes and control on the same machine? Yes

Interesting model that allowed us to verify the possibility of having a boat that is both inflatable and articulated. Now it is not easy, the articulations needs to be very well executed else it creates too much friction for the servos motors to handle. Protei_005.1 did not really function because the servos were too weak and there was too much friction on the cables. The main point was to get familiar with these inflatable new prototyping materials.
