uniMorph – Rapid digital fabrication of film shape-changing interfaces

Created by Felix Heibeck, Basheer Tome and Clark Della Silva with supervision from Hiroshi Ishii at the MIT's Tangible Media Group, uniMorph is an enabling technology for rapid digital fabrication of customized thin-film shape-changing interfaces.

Working with easily available materials and reproducible techniques, uniMorph project leverages the simple unimorph actuation principle that can be found in bi-metals and combines it with the thermoelectric characteristics of copper and the vastly different thermal expansion rate of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW PE) and Kapton. uniMorph enables passive and active shape-actuation of thin flexible sheets and circuits.
