Event: Ignite Phoenix 3 @ TCA
Event Date: February 25th, 2009

The things we build and use are tightly-coupled and compression-based: toys, furniture, vehicles, buildings, etc. We presume this is the only way to create structure, but nature has a different idea.

Kenneth Snelson invented floating compression models in the late 1940s; Buckminster Fuller called the principle tensegrity. Fuller noted, “All [natural] structures, properly understood, from the solar system to the atom, are tensegrity structures.”

Today, researchers are modeling our musculoskeletal system as a tensegrity—a radical departure from the traditional “levers and hinges” anatomical model. What can this shift of perspective mean for us today? What are the Big Rules for effectively and efficiently controlling loosely-coupled structures?

What would be possible if we allowed our bones to float in our bodies … right now?

Everything we know Phoenix about our bodies is wrong.
