Roadways/Bridges/ Stormwater Management

Imagine…bridge-sized elastics and permeable roadbeds…structural 3-D “geo-textiles” for stormwater management that are load-bearing yet permeable and self-draining, allowing water to pass through the material into the ground. Flextegrity’s assembled array architecture could flex to precisely defined specifications and limits under stress, and the component parts could be dissembled and reassembled for maintenance. Designers and engineers […]

Intelligent Streets & Sidewalks

Imagine…underlayment and/or replacement for roads, sidewalks and other hardscape that is strong, resistant to damage by temperature extremes, and porous for drainage of stormwater and natural percolation of petroleum-based pollutants…Imagine the ability to incorporate functional and ‘intelligent’ elements such as conductivity, lighting, and sensors directly into the intrinsic material structure, enabling a single integrated layer […]

Artificial Muscle / Bio-Materials

Imagine…bio-friendly components for artificial body materials that emulate the strength of bone, flexibility of muscles and connective tissue, and physioelectronic conductivity of nerves, due to the ability to incorporate functional elements such as circuitry, conductivity, lighting,  and sensors directly into a single integrated layer of strong and flexible material… […]
