  1. 3D-Printed Self-Folding ElectronicsHere, we demonstrate a method for spontaneous folding of three-dimensional (3D)-printed composites with embedded electronics at room temperature. The composite is printed using a multimaterial 3D-printing process with no external processing steps. Upon peeling from the print platform, the composite self-shapes itself using the residual forces resulting from polymer swelling during the layer-by-layer fabrication process. As a specific example, electrochromic elements are printed within the composite and can be electrically controlled through its folded legs.

  4. A Field Guide to Observabilitywhen you don’t have observability, you can’t tell the difference between normal and abnormal. Nice.
