3d Hair Generator:cilllia by Jifei Ou-Mit Media Lab

Jifei Ou-Mit Media Lab Exhibits The Cilllia 3d Hair Generator

Jifei Ou - MIT Media Lab, the creator of the highlighted design Cilllia - 3D Hair Generator by Jifei Ou - MIT Media Lab illustrates, Inspired by the hair structures occur in nature at different scales with multiple functionalities, Cilllia looks at new ways of 3D printing dense hair on flat and curved surfaces. It allows users to design and generate hair geometry at 50 micrometer resolution and assign various functionalities to the hair, such as mechanical adhesion property; new passive actuation and touch sensing on a 3D printed artifact. The project envisions a future where physical materials’ properties and functions, whether eletrical or mechanical can be encoded in the material fabrication process directly by users..
