MIT is studying three-dimensional joint structure

The joint structure KinetiX, which is being studied by MIT Media Lab, has a folded structure with wrinkles. Wrinkles can be realized not only vertically but also diagonally, creating complex, geometric shapes as well as stereoscopic movements.

The lab calls this wrinkle a hinge. It can be used for a variety of purposes by folding it to form a shape. If you combine boxes with different hinges, you can combine them like a snake. This application can be used as a cancer linking space station and spacecraft. If you use it as a robot part, it is also possible to make a large movement with small power.

In addition, when it comes to impact, it can be used as a packing box that can be transformed into a round shape, such as a helmet cushion, or a small amount of force. For more information, please click here .



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
