Festo – Fluidic Muscle MAS
Over the last few months I’ve been trying to rationalise how to go from concept to engineering on my current kinetic architecture project. Festo for me has been a good place to go looking for innovative products that are proven to work.
Specialists in pneumatics and a huge range of products, including drives, valves, valve terminals, compressed air systems, connection technology, vacuum technology, sensors, control technology and bus systems. A good place to start looking for the sorts of technology available off the shelf for applying to interactive architecture. Kas Oosterhuis and his Hyperbody Research Group have been using festo’s Fluidic Muscle MAS for their MuscleBody project
