MoveOn

We are working on a research project, "Thin Stiffness Changing Material", which focuses on layer jamming technology. Applcation spans from haptic display, wearable devices, robotics, to shape-changing furnitures. Now we are trying to improve the material performance and build more applications.

Task

- Further development of vacuum technology. - Characterization of jamming materials. - Building applications.

Requirements

We expect you are equipped with hands on skills in fabrication. Moreover you should be highly motivated and have a team player personality.
