Fund raising has been going really well and we had one amazing donor donate $5000 to the project. This donor chooses to remain anonymous, but it’s so incredible to know that people believe in this project to such an extent. It’s unbelievably motivating.

Over the coming weeks, we will be starting to explore various approaches to creating the change of state from erect to flaccid, including hydraulic, pneumatic and electro-active possibilities. Currently, I really want to put my money on an electro-active solution, which basically means creating a material that will change states when a small electric current is applied. It’s possible that an even more elegant solution is out there, ie the ability for a material to change states without the need for an electric current, but all of this is yet to be seen. I’ll be putting out another post in the near future elaborating on these state changing materials, and let me tell you, it’s pretty exciting stuff. For now, I’ll just give you one hint: Origami.

Also, I’d love to hear your feedback, thoughts and suggestions, so please do leave a comment below!
