Could programmable, 3D-printed fur become a thing?

Tangible Media Group have devised a way to three-dimensionally print hair-like structures on both flat and curved surfaces. The technique, dubbed “Cilllia,” after the cilia filaments that project from nearly all mammalian cells, features a software platform that allows a user to design and fabricate “hair geometries” under 100 microns based on predefined attributes such as angle, thickness, density, and height. Like the motile cilia and flagella found in eukaryotes, MIT’s Cilllia can be assigned sensory functions for the purpose of creating interactive textured surfaces. “Hair is a natural responsive material that interfaces between the living organism and its environment by creating functionalities like adhesion, locomotion, and sensing,” wrote Jifei Ou, a research assistant at the lab and the lead author of a paper presented at the CHI 2016 conference in San Jose, Calif....
