4-D Printing: The Solution to a $350 Billion Problem?
By Josh Grasmick, The Daily ReckoningAug 26, 2013, 11:16 AM
You’ve heard about 3-D printing technology. It’s poised to revolutionize the future of manufacturing globally. We call it the “Click, Print Anything Revolution.”
But do you know about 4-D printing?
4-D printing tech is what happens when 3-D printing gets “smart.” Like a seed that follows the inner instructions of its DNA, 3-D printed materials can be programmed to self-assemble.
These new materials can shift shapes in response to outside forces, such as contact with water, air, gravity, magnets and/or temperature change. “The idea behind 4-D printing,” says director of MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab Skylar Tibbits, “is that you take multimaterial 3-D printing… and you add a new capability, which is transformation.”
Tibbits is collaborating with Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS) to further his 4-D printing project at the Self-Assembly Lab. They believe the tech is powerful enough to disrupt “biology, material science, software, robotics, manufacturing, transportation, infrastructure, construction, the arts and even space exploration.”
En Octobre 2012, je rencontre pour la première fois l'équipe du Labfab lors de Viva-Cités a Rennes. Je leur parle de mon handicap, de la prothèse myoéléctrique que je porte, de l'évolution dans ce domaine ces dernières ...
