Each hollow rod is made of memory polymers that unfold in heated water and is connected with 3D-printed elastic cables.Though another team unveiled a similar shape-shifting object earlier this year, this new one uses tensional integrity, or “tensegrity,” a lightweight structural system made of floating rods and cables. Researchers believe this device could be used in space travel to create objects that compact for storage and expand for use. The post This 3D-Printing Lands In Hot Water appeared first on Vocativ.
