Cilllia: 3D Printed Micro-Pillar Structures for Surface Texture, Actuation and Sensing

A group from MIT dives into the inner workings of Cillia in order to design touch responsive hairs a fraction of a millimeter in diameter.

What implications does this have for the way we define a touch screen, or touch sensors? Enjoy this fascinating read on how researchers have developed the artificial hair.

We have found the best material to print fine hairs with Formlab’s resins is Grey Resin.
