Y-Pod Morphing Architecture
The First Universal Assembler For Shape-Changing Structures
Using Conventional Actuators For Multi-Functional Applications
- The Only Cellular Architecture
- The Only Vascular Architecture
- For nano, micro and macro.
The new patent on the Y-Pod morphing architecture provides the design engineer with the first 3-D universal assembly system. The potential for this paradigm shift in design engineering is comparable to the potential of Xerox GUI architecture in 1980. Y-Pod morphing architecture is the first 3-D universal assembler.

The patent on the Y-Pod architecture is more than a design system for a shape-changing structure. The patent covers the entire system: design elements, actuators and functional modalities.
The World is Not Flat
The world of nature is not totally flat, rigid and laminar. The world of nature is not square. The world of nature is cellular, vascular and variable in rigidity. The structure, functionality and actuation in nature are provided by the carbon atom. The chemical bonds of the carbon atom are like all chemical bonds: they are flexible and similar to springs. There are no straight lines or right angles in nature. There are no perfect spheres in nature.
Functionality of the Carbon Atom
The Y-Pod morphing architecture provides the functionality of the carbon atom to the design engineer. This new architecture can enable him to design systems that function on the nano, micro and macro scales.
How do You Design a Shape Changing Sphere with Controlled Actuation?
The problem goes back to the decision by the Greeks to use the decimal system of mathematics instead of hexadecimal mathematics from Babylonia. This explains why there were no round buildings with domes for 2000 years after the fall of Babylonia.
