Exercise 3

I found the root paper, Printed paper actuator: a low-cost reversible actuation and sensing method for shape changing interfaces, in the course bibliography. I am most interested in its usage of accessible material (paper), and the characteristic of reversible and electrical actuation. It is a conference paper from Proceedings of the 2018 CHI Conference, so

Exercise 1: “Morphing Origami Block for Lightweight Reconfigurable System”

This paper proposes a way for fast and reversible movement for reconfigurable structure through a 3D shape shifting system. It uses shape memory alloy wire actuators to transform and morph multiple origami blocks into diverse shapes. @article{kim_morphing_2020,title = {Morphing Origami Block for Lightweight Reconfigurable System},issn = {1941-0468},doi = {10.1109/TRO.2020.3031248},abstract = {Origami provides a unique tool

Soft Robotic Tongue | Academic Literature Search

“A Soft Robotic Tongue–Mechatronic Design and Surface Reconstruction” (Lu, Xu, Li) presents a actuated device mimicking a tongue. I was interested in this article because of the range of complex surface deformations the authors were able to accomplish with just six pressure-controlled air chambers. @ARTICLE{ 8025393, author={ X. {Lu} and W. {Xu} and X. {Li}
