OmniFiber

OmniFiber is a soft robotic fiber technology for autonomous textiles and garments. A novel microfluidic fiber actuator is engineered with gesture programmability, that can sense its own physical deformation and mechanically respond to it. OmniFiber has versatile morphing behavior, multimodal haptic feedback, high frequency response, high strain and force output which allow designers to flexibly weave them into everyday interactions such as kinesthetic wearables for skill learning and transfer, dynamic fitting garments, and textile-based haptic devices for telepresence applications.

Bio-inspired fabric

Uniqueness :The textile can coil and uncoil upon human touch, can absorb carbon form from atmosphere based on the features of leaves and artificial photosynthesis and chances of providing water at locations where oxygen is less but exposure to sunlight is possible. Inspiration: memosa-pudica plant (bio-inspiration). Challenge: To deduce features of memosa pudica, artificial photosynthesis and incorporate into textile fabrication. Production : Two methods; First by compression rolling and second by edgebinding. Team Members: Pradeep Yammiyavar & Rajatesh Nath Barbhuiya.
