Protocells: a new 'living' material technology
Can the study of Protocells principles provoke a new vision for future materials?
The study of Protocells is a new and emerging science that has the potential drastically to revolutionise future materiality.
Essentially Protocells is a form of synthetic biology that blurs the gap between the non-living and living. Encouraging the emergence of life from lifeless liquid chemicals manufactured artificially in the laboratory could provide us the building blocks to create a new man-made nature. Through this collaboration with Dr Martin M. Hanczyc we seek to envisage and propose tangible product concepts that communicate the future potential of Protocell science.
