4D printing – Jewelry design of the future

Many different plastics and fibers are combined to create shape-shifting “smart materials” that morph when in contact with certain stimuli such as heat or water. An object will be scanned, then compressed in order to fit inside a 3D printer. The buyer would simply download it, print it out, and finally unfold it.

This new technology will revolutionize the way jewelry is worn and created. It is the future.
