Well, sort of. Let me explain.

In order to be able to change states between flaccid and erect for the Bionic, we will need to find a more efficient system than just a straight forward, balloon-like bladder. A balloon requires a lot of volume and energy to fill, so instead, we are looking at a more capillary-like, folding structure, influenced by the ancient art of origami. I can’t give too much away, but these videos, though by no means a direct illustration, will give you a little bit of a teaser as to the lines of thinking…

…and they’re also just incredibly satisfying to watch!
