Skylar Tibbits, an MIT Researcher, architect, designer, computer scientist and TED Senior Fellow, is working on BioMolecular Self-Assembly and human scale 4D printing as well as a technology called 4D Printing: Multi-material Shape Change Over Time.
Project Cyborg was used to simulate various shape transformations and optimize folding sequences in 4D Printing. According to Professor Tibbits, "this software is a great demonstration of the scalability of self-assembly, a design and construction phenomena that spans from the nano-scale to the human scale and promises to reinvent our ways of making in the future."
