  1. 1. Claytronics<br />A Presentation by:AmitMahajan<br />B. Tech(ECE), 7th Semester<br />GNDU<br />
  2. 2. What is Claytronics?<br />Dynamic 3-Dimensional Display of information<br />CLAYTRONICS!<br />
  3. 3. Claytronics: The Research<br />Collaborative Research in Programmable Matter is Directed by Carnegie Mellon University and Intel<br />Goal of Research<br />To give forms of Information that are:<br />Tangible<br />Interactive<br />In Digital environments that are<br />Indistinguishable from reality<br />
  4. 4. Main Focus of Research<br />1. Creating Claytronic atoms (Catoms)<br />2. Designing reliable programs to manage the shaping of ensembles of millions of catoms into dynamic, 3-d forms.<br />Original<br />Replica<br />Ensemble of Catoms<br />Single Unit<br />
  5. 5. Catoms<br />Catoms = claytronic atoms<br />Self Assembly of catoms<br />Synthetic Reality<br />Catoms: less than a millimeter in size<br />For high resolution applications millimeter scale catoms are required that are electro statically actuated and self contained<br />
  6. 6. Role of Moore’s Law<br />Claytronic technology has become possible because of Moore's Law<br />Moore's Law: A long-term trend in the history of computing hardware, in which number of transistors placed inexpensively on an IC has doubled (approx) every two years<br />
  7. 7. Programmable Matter<br />Micro-Nanoscale Computer<br />Basic unit<br />Catom<br />Self Assembly of Catoms<br />Biggest Challenge<br />
  8. 8. Current Status of Research<br />Current stage of design: Claytronics hardware operates from macro scale designs with devices much larger than the tiny modular robots<br />Researchers investigate the effects of scale on:<br />Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems<br />Manufacturable, Nanoscale modular robots capable of self-assembly<br />
  9. 9. Types of Catoms<br />Planer Catoms<br />Electrostatic Latches<br />Stochastic Catoms<br />Giant Helium Catoms<br />Cubes<br />Electrostatic Latches<br />Giant Helium Catoms<br />Cubes<br />Stochastic Catoms<br />
  10. 10. Revolution in Communication<br />One Dimensional<br />Two Dimensional<br />Three Dimensional<br />
  11. 11. Shape Shifting Furniture!<br />Change the shape of furniture and the wall paintings according to preferences from time to time!<br />
