Harvard University have shone some light on the concept of self-building electronics, as they created a lamp that can assemble itself. The little lamp uses heat to activate its structure and comes to life wall by wall. A special printer layers shape-memory polymers, copper, paper and foam for structure that are then held together with double-sided tape. The lamp was presented as part of the IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation in Hong Kong.
