Normally, these fibers are burned spoken, but after examination by plant scientists these fibers are used for other purposes to date. A paper made from bio-based fiber paper ensures we use natural resources better. In addition, the paper has a high tactile value as you feel the fibers.

A number of factors changes the way we think of materials: they become responsive to the environment, or have an especially useful function. So how can we show ‘smartness’ in materials?

Great design needs little or no explanation. This set of plastic cutlery based on common vegetables is great because it speaks for itself!

It can be refreshing to see people approach well-known topics from an unusual angle. A Chilean office has developed what they call a catenary pottery printer. It’s an analogue 3D printing machine that uses traditional materials such as wood, textile and clay. The designers, GT2P (which stands for ‘great things to people’), wanted to explore …

Talking about ‘blowing up metal objects’ often brings explosions to mind. But a technique developed over the last decade is rather more subtle, and looks set to make a mark in the manufacturing industry.
Called FiDU, the technique involves welding thin metal plates together at their edges and then inflating them to create any number of shapes and objects.

A new smart-phone is made of a flexible polymer, so it can bend and warp without damaging itself. But that’s not the only great thing about the phone. Equally impressive is a less visible, but no less important aspect. The G-flex phone by the South Korean brand LG will be able to self-heal.
