It wasn’t long ago that Intel first started
about programmable matter (their concept for an amorphous blob formed from microscopic glass spheres that can take any shape). Thanks to a
from CNN, the idea makes a lot more sense by showing the concept in action.
Now, the video is all pre-rendered, the concept still remains. The short video shows a group of designers messing with the frame of a car, as well as changing its color and even cracking it open to check out the seat configuration.
The video also mentions that Intel is “on the edge of discovery” with programmable matter. So, while it’s admittedly the thing that dreams are made of today, it won’t be for quite some time that this is a readily available resource.
