Cabe, that sounds like an interesting combination. Maybe you should try writing to Georgia Tech and making that suggestion?

mrdon, HMI is an interesting application idea. BTW, I think a.saji meant that new technologies that can be applied to robotics are happening very quickly right now.

Greg, that's interesting that several people, including you, mentioned medical applications. I was thinking more along the line of industrial uses but medical makes a lot of sense.

I wonder if this could be coupled with Georgia Institute of Technology's sensor device that converts mechanical pressure into light for ultra-sensitivity akin to human skin. https://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?nid=228141

vimalkumarp, good point about companion robots as an application for this tech.

Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
A new thermoplastic composite for high-speed, high-volume injection molding has tensile strength that's close to, and sometimes better than, either lay-up composites or metals.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and MIT have 3D-printed a new class of metamaterials that are both exceptionally light and have exceptional strength and stiffness. The new metamaterials maintain a nearly constant stiffness per unit of mass density, over three orders of magnitude.
Smart composites that let the material's structural health be monitored automatically and continuously are getting closer to reality. R&D partners in an EU-sponsored project have demonstrated what they say is the first complete, miniaturized, fiber-optic sensor system entirely embedded inside a fiber-reinforced composite.
