A USF Mechanical Engineering professor is developing a new flexible surface technology that could be applied to a number of industries.
Dr. Craig Lusk uses a laser to cut sheets of polymer into dynamic, geometric pieces. He uses his research to tie together the shapes in a way that could revolutionize some industries and create new products not yet invented. Dr. Lusk specializes in something called "compliant mechanisms," which refers to the movement, or motion, the precision-cut shapes take on when they interact with each other.
