The Making of Furl: Soft Pneumatic Pavilion from Interactive Architecture Lab on Vimeo.

"Furl is a model of a kinetic interactive pavilion crafted from soft robotics. Imagined by researchers Bijing Zhang and Francois Mangion at The Interactive Architecture Lab, a masters program of the Bartlett School of Architecture in London, these flexible robotic appendages made from silicone "air muscles" can inflate, twist, and curl in response to brainwaves. "Through [a] combination of soft and hard architectural elements, Furl creates a new platform for a kinetic responsive architecture which can let space interact with users needs and adapt itself to environmental conditions," explains the video description." http://thecreatorsproject.vice.com/blog/this-futuristic-tentacle-pavilion-morphs-with-your-thoughts
