MIT Researchers inspired by “kirigami” to 3D print better bandages

Researchers at MIT have perforated elastomer film with “kirigami” slits using 3D printed molds to improve the adhesiveness of the film. Kirigami is a variation of origami that involves folding and cutting paper to produce patterns or structures, such as snowflakes. Ruike Zhao, a postdoctoral associate at MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, says that the […]
