We have conducted the research necessary to enable the design and fabrication of actively controlled microarchitectures ACMs. ACMs are a new kind of mechanical metamaterial that utilize flexures, actuators, sensors, and control circuitry within tiny unit cells that constitute large lattices to achieve system-level properties or shape changing capabilities that can be programmed and uploaded on demand.
