Interactive Clay

This is a claybot

Thousands of claybot can self-assemble into any shape, and reassemble into another, indefinitely.

High resolution

A single claybot has a diameter of ø 2mm, small enough for macro details, large enough to be handled by hand.


Each claybot uses the same harmless forces that allow a balloon to bond with a sweater.

Energy self-sufficient

Longer life cycle and easier to recycle, thanks to our battery-free energy harvesting chip.


The world's smallest computer is hidden inside each claybot, allowing you to handle them individually.

This is how it works

From digital to physical and conversely.
Many claybots are assembled and lines go through each of their center.

Claybots define shapes ...

When connected together, the center of each claybot is converted into a vertex or edge, which together describe a complex solid volume.

... contained in a smart box...

Volume data is relayed between the claybots and a computer through a very clever unit that act as both a container and a stand for your Interactive Clay models.

... connected to your software

Our software extension updates the vertices and edges of the solid volume to and from the model in Interactive Clay.
Physical. Digital. Simultaneous.

Discover applications

From architecture, urban design, interior design, to health, automotive and more.

They believe in us

We are following Phigi with great interest. If their work succeeds, it could be of interest to styling departments, for example automotive, especially when they work on different countries or continents. It is therefore quite natural that Stellantis keeps an eye on this startup, and that the Mattern Lab has the pleasure to host them.

Tomorrow, THIRD could be promoters of Phigi's interactive clay to facilitate our clients early conception.
