Versatile building blocks make structures with surprising mechanical properties
#1
Hello, folks. Here's a link to a MIT article dated 11/18/2020; its title is the thread subject.

Apparently, a car made using these materials a) was assembled in about a month instead of the nearly a year fiberglass techniques would have provided and b) survived a crash into a wall that would have totaled either traditional metallic or composite vehicles. Wicked neat!
