A high-energy shape memory polymer could someday enable robots to “flex their muscles”, according its developers.
When stretched or deformed, shape memory polymers return to their original shapes after heat or light is applied.
These materials show great promise for soft robotics, smart biomedical devices and deployable space structures, but until now they haven’t been able to store enough energy. [Read more…] about High-energy shape memory polymer could enable robots to ‘flex their muscles’
