Super-Releaser Robotics

Soft robots for hard problems

We're a multidisciplinary group of designers, artists, and engineers. Super-Releaser is currently developing medical device prototypes, collaborating with universities, offering soft robotics manufacturing expertise, and hacking away at the technologies involved in making better robots.



Matthew Borgatti


Matthew has a degree in Industrial Design from RISD. He spent every summer while getting it making animatronic monsters in the SFX industry. He has designed for companies like Bond, Sols, Instructables, Makani Power, Adafruit, and MAKE.

Matthew provides the design and mechanical engineering for the majority of Super-Releaser's devices. 


James F. Bredt, PhD

Director of Research 

Jim founded Z-Corp (which was world's largest 3d printer manufacturer), teaches at MIT, owns the powder printing research lab Viridis 3d, and is the human spotlight at the Ig Nobel Awards.

Jim's material science and printing research has been essential to forming the technologies at the core of Super-Releaser.


Sea Lab


Sea Lab is a privately owned prototyping space in Brooklyn, NY.  It has spawned consumer products, art installations, and manufacturing technologies.



Viridis is Jim's own lab and print shop, where he develops powders for 3D printing as well as a few top secret prototypes.
