This video by Softology is about 3d cellular automata. Visions of Chaos is a professional high end software application for Windows. It is simple enough for people who do not understand the mathematics behind it, but advanced enough for fractal enthusiasts to tweak and customise to their needs.
TETRO+A and WHITEvoid present its immense light structure ‘STALACTITE’ which floats above the audience of the bright brussels festival 2018 in belgium. it invites to ‘switch off’ the irrelevant and concentrate on the bliss of the pure audio-visual statement.
Researchers at the University of Michigan have created a topological metamaterial that allows the material to switch between being hard as steel and soft as rubber. The researchers discovered a way to compose a metamaterial that can be easily manipulated to increase the stiffness of its surface by orders of magnitude— the difference between rubber and steel.
Paul Robinson has been working on a universal bracket that can be used not only for any frequency geodesic dome but many other structures as well. A single universal bracket that can join any number of struts at any angle.
This video by PhysicsFun would show you 3 minutes of oddly satisfying scientific curiosities feauturing various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!
Transforming furniture refers to a broad category of products and home furnishings that have more than one practical function. This can range from something as simple as a sofa bed or an extension table to more hyper-functional pieces such as our wall beds or modular home offices.
The project Mobile Robotic Fabrication System for Filament Structures by Maria Yablonina, demonstrates a new production process for filament structures. It proposes multiple semi-autonomous wall climbing robots to distribute fiber filament, using any horizontal or vertical surface.
RFly, a drone-based wireless system that was designed by MIT researchers can scan and locate items in warehouses. The system leverages cheap, battery-free RFID (Radio Frequency Identifier) stickers, which are attached to every item in the warehouse similar to barcodes.
Diller Scofidio + Renfro worked in close collaboration with Arup on the design of The Broad, helping showcase a “veil-and-vault” concept. This concept removes the normal museum archive and storage area as a place where items go to never be seen again.
Gyroscopes can often seem to defy the laws of physics. However, these devices actually serve as perfect examples of several laws of Physics and play important roles in some of technology’s biggest breakthroughs.
Affectionately named The Friendly Alien, by its designers Peter Cook and Colin Fournier, the Knusthaus Graz was built for the European Cultural Capital 2003 activities in Graz, Austria.
In this video by Cutoutfoldup you can learn to make mathematical surfaces using bubble solution and wire. In mathematics, a surface is a two-dimensional manifold.
Following a seven month design competition with submissions from the world’s leading architecture firms, the National Media Council of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) selected Santiago Calatrava’s proposal for the UAE Pavilion at the Dubai World Expo 2020.
This pavilion by Milad Showkatbakhsh, Chritopher Testa, Chris Yu and Shayna Cooper explores the limits of composite aluminum panels. With the use of parametric modelling and digital fabrication, a unitized panel system was designed that aggregates to operate as a larger system of surfaces.
ShapeDiver.com lets you upload and display your Grasshopper definitions online for free*, along with their parameters. Once uploaded, the system makes sure anyone in the world can access and edit your definition’s parameters via a web browser, while your scripts remain private and safe on servers located inside the EU.
Arthur Blank, the owner of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons and MLS’s Atlanta United, wanted Mercedes-Benz Stadium to provide an architectural icon for the city and a fan experience that is second to none. HOK’s design reimagines what a stadium can be, creating a building that looks and functions like no other and that transforms the experience of going to a live event.
Two towers weighted with pendulums create elaborate ink spirograph images in ‘drawing machine’, by swedish-born, copenhagen-based designer eske rex, was on display at the mindcraft 11 exhibit of danish craft during milan design week 2011.
What if a table or a bridge could build itself? If researchers at the self-assembly lab at MIT have their way, parts will someday put themselves together. In This article Skylar Tibbits explains what a self-assembling future could look like.
Stone PolySphere installation, designed by Maurizio Barberio and Giuseppe Fallacara (New Fundamentals Research Group), investigates the potential of digital fabrication applied to the stone industry. Stone PolySphere is a lithic sphere with a diameter of 1.4 meters, composed by a massive hemisphere below and a stereotomic hemisphere above.
The research team at the Institute for Computational Design (ICD) and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) have taken morphological inspiration from the structure of the sea urchin and the sand dollar, both sea-bed invertebrates, to create what almost bears semblance to a floating bee hive, in a team combining architects, engineers, biologists, and palaeontologists.
Katia Bertoldi of Harvard held a holey plastic metamaterial that looked like a pink Connect Four board, with a regularly repeating arrangement of holes. When squeezing the material, some holes became horizontal ovals, as you would expect in an ordinary material.
In this video by Boss Laser you can see how to make a rigid material flexible using your laser cutter. There is a way to use laser cutting to create 3D objects from flat materials, and it uses a clever design element called a Lattice or Living Hinge.
Ahmad Rafsanjani and Damiano Pasini of McGill University in Montreal, set out to create a new class of futuristic materials that grow when stretched and get their abilities from the geometries of ancient Islamic art. They could be useful in medical devices and satellites.
A completely new geometric shape has been discovered by a group of researchers looking into the dynamics of cells that contribute toward the embryonic development and lead to the formation of human organs. Lehigh University professor, Javier Buceta, helped discover this geometric shape— the scutoid.
A team of MIT researchers has designed a breathable workout suit with ventilating flaps that open and close in response to an athlete’s body heat and sweat. These flaps, which range from thumbnail- to finger-sized, are lined with live microbial cells that shrink and expand in response to changes in humidity.
1:1 prototypes (Spring 2012) conducted by Jelle Feringa at the Hyperbody research group of the Faculty of Architecture, TU Delft, Netherlands, invited Matthias Rippmann to teach about designing funicular shells with RhinoVAULT. rV was used for the design of the exciting cut-foam pavilion resulting from the 2 week design-build digital fabrication workshop.
This is a 4D printing video by Pranavee M of 4D printing in action. 5 videos put together showing tests from MIT Self assembly laboratory demonstrating the functionality of shape transformation. Flat-printed structures that, once placed in hot water, slowly folds themselves into another structure.
A multidisciplinary team of Wyss Institute scientists, engineers, and architectural designers at Harvard University are developing Origami Organs that could function like artificial kidneys.
