Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). according to Stefanie Mueller, she is the X-Consortium Career Development Assistant Professor in the departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering,” Largely speaking, people are consuming a lot more now than 20 years ago, and they’re creating a lot of waste and by changing an object’s color, you don’t have to create a whole new object every time.”
“Appearance adaptivity, in general, is always a superior feature to have, and we’ve seen many other kinds of adaptivity enabled with manufactured objects,” says Changxi Zheng, an associate professor at Columbia University who co-directs Columbia’s Computer Graphics Group.
“This work is a true breakthrough in being able to change the color of objects without repainting them.”:)
