MIT Self Assembly Lab make a chair that self assembles itself (just add liquid)

While our customers of our UCLIC home office furniture are super happy with how easy this desk range is to assemble, MIT 'Self Assembly' Lab have gone one step further and created a chair that actually assembles itself!

As you can see from the below video, provided by the MIT science lab, this chair, when all parts are submerged in liquid, then commences to build itself. No, this is not an early April Fools joke.

Mesmerising, isn't it? The process in which the chair forms is called 'Fluid Crystallisation' and this particular project was just a proof of concept, so while the actual assembly time was over 7 hours, continued refinements will see this process reduce drastically in build time.
