What if, in the future, a chair could morph its shape to fit your own unique body so it is truly comfortable? National Geographic Emerging Explorer Skylar Tibbits just might be able to make this a reality. As the director of the Self-Assembly Lab at MIT, Tibbits is taking 3-D printing to a whole new level by adding a fourth dimension, the element of time. Through 4-D printing, Tibbits is developing ways to program materials so they can build themselves or change shape over time, which will allow us to reinvent products and construction in the future.
