according to foreign media reports, MIT and BMW are studying a new form of 3D printing air technology, which can completely change the car interior

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and BMW are cooperating to develop 3D printable, inflatable and elastic materials to change the design of future cars. At present, inflatable air bags and some seats have been used in cars. But because inflatable objects require a thin and elastic material that is difficult to use to function properly, engineers have not tried any plans that are too complex or too radical

MIT's self-assembly lab is developing a new process called "liquid printing aerodynamics" to change this situation. The printer will squeeze the liquefied material into the gel tank and then cure it. Generally, only hard plastic can be used for 3D printing, but MIT Laboratory can print 100% silicone into various complex air bags that can be programmed to inflate or deflate. Skylar tibbits, CO director and founder of the self-assembly laboratory, told fastcompany, "It uses air programming, which is different from 0 and 1 (binary storage in the computer). You send different air pulses.

the material looks like it can live, breathe, expand and sleep. At the same time, BMW (BMW) How to make the polymerization activity of epoxy monomers equal to that of carbon dioxide in the past decade? Researchers using highly selective catalysts have been committed to the concept of the car with the highest molding efficiency of inflatable plastic parts in the future. One of the concepts is to imagine a car with a flexible, deformable shell. Another idea is to configure a movable, inflatable analog instrument panel to mark the obstacles in front

inflatable materials mean that the car interior can be completely customized: seats can be combined and expanded into different directions and configurations; The hardness or softness of the seat can be programmed; Of course, it can also be redesigned. Chengli graduated from Southwest University of science and technology in Mianyang, Sichuan Province; There may be more uses. MIT has not revealed how BMW will use the new technology, but according to researchers, the possible application of the technology lies in inflation and deflation
