Jifei Ou-Mit Media Lab Designs The Cilllia 3d Printing Hair

Jifei Ou - MIT Media Lab, the project leader of the highlighted design 3D printing hair:Cilllia by Jifei Ou - MIT Media Lab points out, Inspired by the hair structures occur in nature at different scales with multiple functionalities, Cilllia looks at new ways of 3D printing dense hair on flat and curved surfaces. It allows users to design and generate hair geometry at 50 micrometer resolution and assign various functionalities to the hair, such as mechanical adhesion property; new passive actuation and touch sensing on a 3D printed artifact. The project envisions a future where physical materials’ properties and functions, whether eletrical or mechanical can be encoded in the material fabrication process directly by users..
