3D Printed Fabric Stiffens On Demand
C'est hyper intéressant même si je ne vois pas encore de cas d'usage. Je me demande le cout / complexité à produire.
Researchers in Singapore and at CalTech have developed a 3D printed fabric with an interesting property: it is generally flexible but can stiffen on demand. You can see a video about the new fabric, below.
The material consists of nylon octahedrons interlocked. The cloth is enclosed in a plastic envelope and vacuum-packed. Once in a vacuum, the sheet becomes much stiffer and can hold many times its own weight.
