MIT Self-Assembly Lab Collaborates with BMW to develop inflatables

Skylar Tibbits and his team at the Self-Assembly Lab, housed at the IDC, are working on inflatable materials with BMW.

The new process, called Liquid Printed Pneumatics, prints materials into gel, similar to the process the lab developed with Steelcase called Rapid Liquid Gel Printing. This new method of printing allows materials to inflate and transform on their own.
