Abstract [en]

“Hot flow in the cold

changes shape in a dead world

comes matter to life”

Programmable matter that allows free shape transfiguration and locomotionon command promises ubiquitous access to objects or functions of interest.Current approaches for the autonomous reshaping of solid objects (smartmaterials, soft actuators, modular robotics) are limited in spatial resolution andshape. Solid-liquid phase change pumping as a mechanism for the contactlesstransfiguring and locomotion of solid objects is introduced. Thin objects aredeformed into any intended shape with sub-millimeter resolution and the abilityto freely change their topology is demonstrated, including adding or removingholes, splitting and merging. The unique locomotion of objects throughmillimeter-sized constrictions narrower than their body size is demonstrated,followed by restoring the original shape. This approach opens up avenues fordeveloping autonomous programmable matter with free shape transfiguration.
