New publication on highly multi-stable surfaces

Enabling large and reversible shape change using composite anisotropy

Check out our latest article on highly multi-stable surfaces published in Advanced Science. Together with collaborators at CMASLab, ETH Zurich we demonstrate the use of composite anisotropy to create metamaterials with hundreds of stable states. We investigate the conditions required for reversible shape change with self-locking capabilities and apply the structures to robotic locomotion. Large numbers of stable states are attractive for multi-modal locomotion to enable exploration of unknown environments in an energy-efficient manner. Explore the full article here.
