Title: System and method for flexure based microstructural logic gates

Abstract

A resettable mechanical logic circuit is disclosed which is formed as part of a material structure. The circuit makes use of a bistable element. The bistable element may have a characteristic of being stable in either one of first and second orientations, once moved past a midpoint between the first and second orientations.
