Bend-It: Design and Fabrication of Kinetic Wire Characters
We present a computational technique for the design of kinetic wire characters, tailored for fabrication on consumer-grade hardware.
Mechanical Characterization of Structured Sheet Materials
We propose a comprehensive approach to characterizing the mechanical properties of structured sheet materials, i.e., planar rod networks whose mechanics and aesthetics are inextricably linked.
MetaSilicone: Design and Fabrication of Composite Silicone with Desired Mechanical Properties
We present a method for designing and fabricating MetaSilicones—composite silicone rubbers that exhibit desired macroscopic mechanical properties.
Computational Design and Automated Fabrication of Kirchhoff-Plateau Surfaces
We propose a computational tool for designing Kirchhoff-Plateau Surfaces-planar rod networks embedded in pre-stretched fabric that deploy into complex, three-dimensional shapes.
Designing Cable-Driven Actuation Networks for Kinematic Chains and Trees
In this paper, we present an optimization-based approach for the design of cable-driven kinematic chains and trees.
A Computational Design Tool for Compliant Mechanisms
We present a computational tool for designing compliant mechanisms.
Contact Pressure Distribution as an Evaluation Metric for Human-Robot Hand Interactions
We propose that the contact pressure distribution of the grasp should be used as a hand benchmark both for naturalness and comfort, and present our initial work in this direction.
