The future of technology will be at the interface between soft, biological materials and quantum-mechanical, electronic materials. We envision a future where soft, self-organizing robots that can dynamically change shape and size in response to stimuli in time. Such robots can range in size from nanoscale to macroscopic scale to address and solve a number of important problems at multiple scales. Although this is a far-reaching, fantastical-seeming goal of science fiction, the technology of tomorrow must begin with the understanding of today. We are at the precipice of elucidating the fundamental principles behind such soft, dynamic, and energy-harnessing systems. The MassCAM at UMass is that frontier of knowledge. We have the collective expertise in self-assembling, active, and programmable soft matter and biomaterials with the electronic and energy-harvesting properties of molecular and nanoscale systems. Our novel, interdisciplinary approach is needed to introduce a new paradigm of electronics manufacturing and to transition new fundamental ideas into innovative technologies and new industries.
