Automatic Folding of Biomaterials Composite

Materials that can be actuated by external stimuli are of particular interest for the manufacturing of interactive objects. Such materials open the possibility to change the shape of objects in response to external conditions, such as humidity. Biocompatible and biodegradable materials like agarose and poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) are of high interest as they can lead to objects able to interact with biological systems for instance for the implantation of small print-size objec
