MIT and BMW Develop “Liquid Printed Pneumatics” for Inflatable Car Interiors

Reading Time: 3 minutes BMW and MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab have collaborated to develop “liquid printed pneumatics”, the first reported 3D printed inflatable material that can morph from one state to another and expand into any shape or function.  Just around two years ago, the BMW Design Department and MIT’s Self-Assembly Laboratory began a cross-disciplinary study with the mutual goal to push the […]

3D Printed AlterEgo Wearable Responds to Silent Speech

Reading Time: 3 minutes Students from MIT have created a prototype 3D printed device, AlterEgo, that can recognize the words you mouth when silently talking to yourself and interpret them as commands. Step aside Alexa, you’ve got some company. A computer interface devised by researchers at MIT can transcribe words that the user verbalizes internally but doesn’t actually speak […]

MIT Unveils inFORM, a Mind-Bending 3D Installation That Lets You Virtually Interact with Objects

Reading Time: < 1 minute MIT researchers have unveiled inFORM, a mind-bending, shape-shifting 3D installation that allows users to virtually “interact with digital information by rendering it in three dimensions.” The display itself is comprised of a grid of ‘pins,’ or long square-topped rods, that can be quickly moved up and down to form 3D shapes. inFORM – Interacting With […]
