Project team Mathias Kolle with Ben Miller
Visual feedback about movement and pressure
Unique opportunities for health care and others
Challenge lies in producing at scale

Dynamic material

A material that changes color to provide visual feedback about movement and pressure offers unique possibilities for medical and other products. The challenge lies in producing it at scale without losing its dynamic characteristics. This project aims to show manufacturability at scale of such a material.
