Programmable matter was a substance used in the 32nd century. Consisting of minute nanomolecules, the matter had the abilities of redistributing and redesigning itself into pre-programmed shapes.

Capable of reading bio-signs, the programmable matter was highly adaptive to an user. It learned and adjusted to the user's reflexes, creating interface styles that were unique to each individual. (DIS: "Scavengers")

As she played with the programmable matter for the first time, Lieutenant Joann Owosekun said, "Feels cool...and smooth. Like glass." (DIS: "Scavengers")

In 3188, at Aditya Sahil's station, the furniture in his bedroom and office and the container holding the Flag of the Federation were made from this matter.

Aboard Cleveland Booker's ship, the controls were made from this matter. (DIS: "That Hope Is You, Part 1")

Programmable matter was also used by the inhabitants of The Colony in 3189. That was the first time Ensign Sylvia Tilly had seen it. (DIS: "Far From Home")

Programmable matter was installed into the USS Discovery's control surfaces as part of her retrofit in the 32nd century. (DIS: "Scavengers").

This substance is identified and described by Property Master Mario Moreira in the aftershow TRR: "That Hope Is You, Part 1".
