Fast Facts on the Importance of 4D Printing & Meta Materials

Making and utilizing new materials to improve our life is a defining feature of mankind. We moved on from the stone age, to the bronze age, to the age of silicon and plastic. Now we are at the edge of a new episode, where technological breakthroughs allow us to create, investigate and dream of a total new range of structured forms of matter.

Two fields emerge strongly:

  1. 4D Printing offers a streamlined path from idea to full functionality.
  2. Mechanical metamaterials are structured materials with mechanical properties defined by their structure rather than their composition.

These are highly promising disciplines which develop in a synergistic manner, and which aim at creating entirely new forms of matter, which will lead to applications that have not yet been conceived.
