Mechanical Logic using Multi-Plane Mechanical Metamaterials

Metamaterials are architected materials designed to exhibit properties superior to their constituent material. Metamaterial structures are well established in optics, acoustics, and thermodynamics. Additive Manufacturing has enabled the expansion of metamaterial application space into mechanical mechanisms. These architected materials exploit structural deformations and mechanical energies to exhibit unique phenomena that are used to build functional … Read more
