MIT engineers have created soft, magnetic 3-D-printed structures that can transform their shape almost instantaneously by the wave of a magnet. The structures are flexible, yet strong and could be used to develop remotely controlled biomedical devices.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is an independent, coeducational, privately endowed university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our mission is to advance knowledge; to educate students in science, engineering, and technology; and to tackle the most pressing problems facing the world today. We are a community of hands-on problem-solvers in love with fundamental science and eager to make the world a better place.
The MIT YouTube channel features videos about all types of MIT research, including the robot cheetah, LIGO, gravitational waves, mathematics, and bombardier beetles, as well as videos on origami, time capsules, and other aspects of life and culture on the MIT campus. Our goal is to open the doors of MIT and bring the Institute to the world through video.
The guys are Asian. Why am I not surprised, when American schools are pumping out a large percentage of students who become adults that disbelieve in evolution, disbelieve climate science, and enough morons to actually make Trump remotely competitive in an election.
But then perhaps we can't blame the schools, so much as the right wing ideology that infests our nation, along with the growing number of media outlets (like Fox News and right wing radio, blogs, YouTube channels) where they disseminate disinformation and general stupidity. Along with the greedy ideology of unregulated, unrestrained capitalism (in a world and future where that is becoming increasingly nonviable).
Schools in America need to better immunize students from these right wing charlatans by putting a much greater emphasis on critical thinking skills and understanding things like logical / rhetorical fallacies.
Amazing. I wonder if MIT will one day develop a method of using text that's more legible on their videos; or better yet, narrate a video so one can actually watch the footage simultaneously. I know, I'm a dreamer...
This is a wonderful invention, it's basically a nanomachine with NO battery NO actuators, that can be ACTUATED remotely just with magnets. Suspend it in a magnetic field and you can create a crane game with a floating crane arm.
I think it's application is quite limited right now, due to the difficulty in controlling the external magnetic source.
Also the flexible nature of the material and the lightness of the material make it difficult to use in large applications. Currently only small objects can be moved by it.. if you need to move large objects or imprint the ink/ magnetic materials into cars or metal or glass you will need a very large magnetic force.
Miniaturizing this printable object can be useful, e.g. use in substance delivery inside a blood vein. However the printing resolution could present a challenge.
URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART is an international institution for art, creative projects and social exchange. Since September 2017 URBAN NATION shows under the leitmotif "Connect. Create. Care." that the house is far more than a museum.
Museum Opening hours Tuesday-Sunday: 10.00-18.00 Free admission.

IN THE STUDIO WITH … HAYLEY.
British born artist Hayley Welsh, has established herself as one of the newest creatives in the Western Australian art scene. There is something quite fantastical and a little bit dark lurking in Hayley’s work. Her latest work of art was created for the URBAN NATION and kicks off “The Monster Project”. We took the chance
Live @ the museum III – “Home” by Icy & Sot.
With her work made live in the URBAN NATION Museum, the artist duo once again draws attention to the fate of refugees and addresses the yearning for a home. Born in Iran, the artist duo Icy & Sot is known for addressing current political debates about war, peace, hope, despair and above all human rights […]
Three New Community Walls in June by Frz, Nafir & Xamoosh.
In addition to the two artists behind Icy & Sot, three other street artists from Iran will visit Berlin at the end of June and design one of our communiy walls on Bülowstraße. The three Iranians Frz, Nafir and Xamoosh are an integral part of the Iranian street art community. In their works, they address […]
