Gumby Bots! New Bendable Structures Could Make Origami Machines
Bendable 3D-printed structures that, when heated, quickly snap back to their original shapes could help make sophisticated drug-delivery devices or origami robots, researchers said. Engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Singapore University of Technology and Design have devised a new fabrication process that uses ultraviolet light to print successive layers of polymers into 3D, Transformer-like structures that "remember" their shapes.
