Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques
Les Post-Sapiens sont le résultat de formes émergentes se dégageant petit à petit des multiples avatars que l'homme adopte de nos jours, du fait notamment de l'influence qu'exerce sur son évolution les nouvelles sciences et technologies.

Self-assembling Furniture ‘Grows Like Popcorn’

Self-assembling Furniture ‘Grows Like Popcorn’ | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

Assembling your own furniture, after you have brought it home from the showroom, is a nightmare for many people.

So, what if flat-pack furniture was smart enough to assemble itself?

Belgian designer and engineer Carl de Smet is experimenting with a kind of smart foam technology, which he believes could do just that.

Once heated to a set temperature, the material he works with, shape memory polyurethane (SMPU), will expand to a given design.

Currently working with scaled-down models, de Smet is close to building the technology to achieve the effect with full-size furniture.

Ahead of its formal unveiling at the Milan Design Week festival on Tuesday, he gave BBC News a sneak preview at his Brussels studio.
