NASA’s Meteorite resistant chain mail 4D Printed fabric.
NASA are stepping straight into the future of textiles with their 4D printed ‘space fabric’—a metallic material intended to be used like ‘chain mail’ to protect astronauts and spacecraft alike during their missions.The material remains fold-able and retains the ability to change shape easily.
4D print self-transformation can be more useful in future wearable technologies.:)
Researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, put their work to the test recently.
Researchers team built three custom drones such as dubbed Batman, Joker and Nightwing.
Rob Reid of JPL said, “We pitted our algorithms against a human You can actually see that the A.I. flies the drone smoothly around the course, whereas human pilots tend to accelerate aggressively, so their path is jerkier our autonomous drones can fly much faster, one day you might see them racing professionally!”
AI and 3D, 4D Printing have the ability to work like mankind does. This is a software humans are going to write code. We always need humans for improved technologies, especially in the medical field for better health. 🙂
Mr.Jonathan Stickland, is our specialist in 4d print technology. We know some of the parts of 4D printing. 4D printing is emerging technology.
4d printing would be useful for car manufacturing.The structured technology of 4d printing is designed for repairing damage without command cars can be safer with less regular maintenance and servicing 4d printing can be used to ensure that the manufacturing process of cities can be built on time efficient schedules.
This will benefits our future medical technologies. 🙂
ACES researchers have turned their attention to the medical field of soft robotics, manufacturing a valve that actuates in response to its surrounding water’s temperature. ACES is the first group to combine printing a 4D device with four different cartridges simultaneously, while using tough gels with the incorporated actuating materials.
The fourth dimension is time, shape shifting in fact, and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) at the University of Wollongong is helping to set the pace in the next revolution in additive manufacturing.
4D printed water valve will save our money
