I have been interested in the directions of new technology and the power of networks to do work. Here’s an interesting video about self-assembly, which is the coordination of unorganized parts into a new structure. This is food for thought that hints at some interesting new directions of science and technology.
Self-assembly: The power of organizing the unorganized – Skylar Tibbits
Description: From something as familiar as our bodies to things vast as the formation of galaxies, we can observe the process of self-assembly, or when unordered parts come together in an organized structure. Skylar Tibbits explains how we see self-assembly at work in biology and chemistry — and even in our future technologies.
