In this fascinating project done by the MIT the relationship between digital and biological manufacture of a tissue is examined. The basic structure is made of a one kilometre long thread, which is woven on 26 panels by means of an algorithm inspired on the tissue of the silkworm. And what happens next you would better see than read. A film report of this research achieved in 5 days over 30,000 viewers and counting.
