3D-printed self-folding electronics on MIT front page!

Subramanian Sundaram's recent work 3D-printed self-folding electronics was selected as Today's spotlight on MIT front page this morning! In this paper, Subra and his colleagues built a prototype self-folding printable device that includes electrical leads and a polymer “pixel” that changes from transparent to opaque when a voltage is applied to it. Check out this video to learn more about this tiny and cute self-folding robot!
