The picture above can't be strictly defined as a 3D printed model, but fits into the same realm of 3D objects that have come to life. Dubbed "programmable matter", the Intel-developed technology allows for even greater control over prototypes, which are manipulable by human touch and reprogrammed on the fly to create a new 3D model. The new technology, unveiled by Intel last year, has limitless applications, allowing users to dynamically modify prototypes. While 3D printing is definitely a reality now, programmable matter is more a sign of what is to come.
