Future Life Series: Claytronics Technology
What is Claytronics ?
Clayrtonics is nanometer-scale computers or robots called claytronic atom or catom, and this catoms can interact with each other to form 3D-Object that human can interact with.
Sometimes they call Claytronics a Programmable Matter cause in that case we can program this catoms to perform many shapes just change the program that role this matter.
What is Claytronics Applications ?
- Human-Computer Interfaces
What is Catom ?
Catom is the main component in the Clayrtonics Concept, it’s the atom of Claytronic structure.
Catoms can move in the 3-Dimensions relative to each other, and they can communicate with each others to create the 3D-Object that the program have.
Catom consist of:
- Network Device
- Single Pixel Display
- Onboard Battery
- Connectors to adhere to another catoms
How they program this Catoms ?
Researches can develop software for catoms using two new programming Languages developed by Carnegie Mellon University
