The Amoeba surface-adapting trainer is a conceptual prototype that seeks to probe the future of new materials derived from Protocells.
The study of protocells is a new and emerging science that has the potential to drastically revolutionise the way we make materials. Essentially protocells blur the gap between the non-living and the living. Engineering the emergence of life from lifeless liquid chemicals manufactured artificially in the laboratory could provide the building blocks to create a new-made nature.
She believes that we are on the cusp of a material revolution led by emerging living technologies. Science is becoming the future designer's toolbox. She is currently working scientist Dr Martin Hanczyc from the University of Southern Denmark to fabricate a tangible trainer for 2050
