Matter just became programmable
Providing smart atoms to empower professionals building multi-purpose tools and tangible interfaces anytime, anywhere.
THREE FIELDS OF APPLICATION
Tangible and modular environnements
Programmable Matter is composed of micro-robots, millimeter-sized moving computers that will have the ability to move around each other, communicate, change color, and latch to other micro-robots to form different shapes.
🔧 Multi-purpose items
Space and weight saving tools for astronauts
💻 CAD synchronized design
Virtual / Real time feedback for automotive designers
🎮 Flexible and tangible interfaces
Eye-free & custom control panels for pilots and engineers
Our consortium of academics and industrials is proud to present their world most advanced to date creations
Centimeter-size modular distributed execution environments attached to each other using magnets, praised by artists, designed for education and research in modular robotics.
Quasi-spherical micro-robots, able to stick and move around each other, from car maker to astronauts, discover this incredible technological breakthrough!
