Stunning Kinematics from Nervous System

It seems we have the first proprietary name for an application of “4D Printing”. Coming from Nervous System, a generative design studio, which was founded in 2007 by Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, Kinematics is a project that has resulted from Nervous System’s collaboration with Motorola’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, initiated earlier this year, and fulfilled using technology from 3D Systems. The aim of the original brief for the collaboration was for Nervous System to “create in-person customisation experiences for low cost 3D printers.” The result — Kinematics — certainly fulfills that brief but also has many wider implications for 3D printing.

3D Printers of the World Unite – PrintToPeer’s Giant 3DP Sculpture in the Making

3D printing, though only starting to see its days of glory in the distance, wants to go all out and enjoy more (positive) media coverage to push its agenda of a new way to look and make things, even without a billionaire inventor behind it. In this case, instead of pure speed, the next manufacturing paradigm’s focus is on size and collaborative effort.
