Intelligent materials: creating future technology (The Royal Institution)
Join Skylar Tibbits as he explores how we can design simple and elegant intelligent materials.
Today’s researchers are designing materials that physically sense, adapt, and fall together instead of apart. From furniture that builds itself and flat shoes that jump into shape, to islands that grow themselves.
Join Skylar Tibbits as he explores how we can design simple and elegant intelligent materials, that may one day animate and improve themselves.
In this talk, Skylar discusses how materials can exhibit behaviours that we typically associate with biological organisms, the challenges we face and how they can help us create a sustainable future.
