Project

Demonstrators
The livMatS Demonstrator project aims to build three lines of demonstrators, which are supposed to perform simple decision-making. My aim is to develop mechanisms that enable this decision-making through stimulus-response-systems, which I will implement on the material level. Since this requires the rapid prototyping of complex geometries, I am currently constructing a multi-material 3D-printer capable of combining up to eight substances.
