Self-Assembling Materials: Bringing the 4th Dimension to 3-D Printing

Self-Assembling Materials: Bringing the 4th Dimension to 3-D Printing | Education Technology | Scoop.it

When it comes to the future of manufacturing, self-assembly is the order of the day. Even with the advent of 3-D printing, fashioning objects, buildings and tools can be a time-consuming and tedious process. But if it were one-day possible to create components and materials that could assemble themselves and adjust their configurations based on external conditions, it would not only save us all a ton of time and money, it would also revolutionize the way we live.

In recent years, developments have been made that seeks to generate SA materials using 3-D printing. In this context, they are what is known as 4-D materials – a process where customizable materials are created using a 3-D printer, but which are capable of folding and adjusting their shape at a certain point in time.

The latest in this trend comes from MIT, where researchers at the Self-Assembly Lab have collaborated with Autodesk and Stratasys - two leading companies in the field of 3-D printing hardware and software - to create materials that are not only capable of folding themselves, but also stretching and bending in response to external stimuli.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.
