Skylar Tibbits and Arthur Olson, in collaboration with Autodesk Research, are exhibiting the BioMolecular Self-Assembly project at TED Global 2012, Edinburgh, Scotland.
Full Project Site: BioSelfAssembly.net
Participants at TEDGlobal will each receive a unique glass flask containing anywhere from 4 to 12 red, black or white parts. When the glass flask is shaken randomly the independent parts find each other and self-assemble various molecular structures. The flasks contain a custom tag that identifies the type of molecular structure and the ingredients for successful self-assembly.
