C6XTY deploys nature's own geometry to create materials and structures that are both strong and lightweight. C6XTY utilizes the familiar shape of the soccer ball, which is also known as a Fullerene or Carbon 60 molecule. The unique geometry is inherently stable making it well suited for carrying loads in compression, much like a ball bearing. When the 'Bucky' balls are ordered in a lattice like arrangement, entirely new categories of materials and structures are possible. Solutions can be manufactured at any scale, from almost any substance for a wide variety of applications such as muscle replacements, computer memory to retaining walls, housing, and bridges.
Tomorrow's infrastructure will require 4-D printing technologies to build entire transportation networks and water systems. This infrastructure will be purposely constructed to optimize strength and minimize the use of materials.
