Have you ever heard of architectural robotics? MIT, one of the largest tech centers, has a special division just for studying architectural solutions based on technology and robotics. After 4 years, they came up with a system called Ori.
Ori’s system is modular and transformable, based on sensors, motors, controllers and a automized interface. With just a touch, the furniture re-arranges itself in a new layout, expanding or minimizing its space. Check the video below and visit orisystems.com for more details.
This is real innovation for furniture and interior design.
