We develop pneumatic actuators composed of multiple elastic tubes. Elastic tubes with mechanical constraints have the capability of performing a single various motion while multiple motions cannot be performed. Actuators composed of single-motion tubes can realize multiple motions by controlling air pressure imposed on individual tubes. We present the concept of group actuators and develop their prototypes.
