Our reactive textiles combine the fields of soft-robotics, fluidics and textiles, resulting in a smart metamaterial that can perform different functions.
A reactive textile actuator is a type of smart textile that can change shape in response to an external stimulus, such as a user’s touch. In particular, some reactive textile actuators are designed to go from a flat state to a 3D state due to the arrangement of the layers of material and the design of the circuits.
The specific design of the circuits and layers can be tailored to achieve different shapes and movements, making reactive textile actuators a promising technology for a variety of applications in robotics, wearable technology, and more.
Library of different geometrics and layer arrangements
We have developed a library of different geometrics, structures and material arrangements that can perform movements such us pull, push, bend and stiffening.
