In this letter, we review the results of our recent studies on a soft microswimmer powered by fluid oscillations. The microswimmer consists of an elastic membrane with a prolate spheroidal reference shape containing a rigid sphere. The swimming direction can be controlled by appropriately applying fluid oscillations. The obtained knowledge will be useful for future artificial microswimmer designs.
