Claytronics or "Dynamic physical rendering"

The actual research group from Carnegie Mellon

I like this more immidiate aspect of the theory...

"Even if claytronics doesn't immediately yield 3-D motion, it might be useful for producing 3-D shapes in the computer-aided design process, Goldstein said. Claytronics antennas could change shape to improve reception of different radio frequencies. A Claytronics cell phone might grow a full-size keyboard, or expand its video display as needed.

"It could be the ultimate Swiss Army knife," Mowry said."
