Would You Sleep In Spiderbots-Made Hammock?

Sleeping in a hammock outside during hot, summer months is an invitation you can’t refuse. But what if it were woven by a swarm of robotic spiders? #machinemagic

The Mobile Robotic Fabrication System for Filament Structures is a new process of building things, developed at University of Stuttgart’s Institute for Computational Design. Robotic workers are used to weave fibers in mathematically precise patterns that finally make for functional objects, like a hammock. The machines pass back an forth carbon fiber to build a hammock from scratch as we, humans, watch them at work or even leave the premises.

The amazing thing is the spiderbots construct everything using points on the wall and interact with one another, leading scientists to believe they could do intricate works of art later on.

ICD’s next steps is to increase the number of robots and enable them to attach material on other types of surfaces, like ceilings and curved walls.
