Self-Folding Electronics, Mozilla Comments, Observability, and NLP Library
- 3D-Printed Self-Folding Electronics — Here, 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.

- A Field Guide to Observability – when you don’t have observability, you can’t tell the difference between normal and abnormal. Nice.
