Researchers at the University of Stuttgart built an organic, reconfigurable sun shade system powered by drones and lego like building blocks. The system can adapt the shades to the angle of the sun throughout the day, or even move the cover around based on where people are sitting. While smart sun shades aren't an earth-shattering technology, the researchers think this is only the beginning of real world "reconfigurable architecture systems." Check out the video. One can imagine an agile versatile canopy autonomously moving through a large public space according to the position of the sun, providing the occupants with shade or actively rebuilding itself to influence the occupants while at times retreating entirely to nearby rooftops. This physical flexibility and integrated intelligence enable, new architectural behaviors which are capable of swiftly activating public spaces in defiance of traditionally lethargic building processes and regulations.
