MIT Scientists Discover Bold New Way to Make Fur Without Fur
A team of researchers from MIT’s Tangible Media Group have developed a way to print thousands of fine 3-D-printed hairs in minutes, a process that would usually take several hours — and a lot of computing power. “3-D printers nowadays have potential to change the way we design materials, yet we are still mostly using it to print static objects like plastic cups,” says Jifei Ou, a member of the Cillia research team. “We aim to create programmable materials, and hair is just one of the examples we are exploring in our lab now.” Whether you actually would want to wear something like this is, of course, dependent on how adventurous you’re feeling.
