Soft Systems at the AADRL

Theodore Spyropoulos and his team at the DRL is doing some incredible research on the potential of soft materiality and self-assembling systems:



Hyperinflate – Inflation Simulation


First simulation of the inflation form with random fixed vertices. Face color defined by the distance of the inflating face centroid from the original centroid position. Hoping to use some development of this for the fabrication workshop later this summer. Built off the toxiclibs physics library in Processing, and this sketch in particular. Unfolded using Pepakura.
