Awesome site selling space age materials Answered

Picture of

If you're hurting for novel materials, do I have the site for you! It's got all these super-cool, futuristic-y weird, wacky and awesome materials made possible by science

Between the talking tape (speaks a message without electronics!), shape memory polylmersuper elastic plastic, temperature sensitive glass (SO pretty!) and the temperature sensitive color changing fabric - I can't decide what I want most! Each product's page gives applications for it, but I'm sure ya'll don't need the suggestions...most of us work in regular plain old metal, wood, leather, plastic, electronics, etc - imagine all the extra routes you could go with some of these things as components.

(No, I'm not being paid or something, I'm just excited about all the possibilities...hey, what about a contest with prizes being money to spend on this site??)

As Kiteman would say - Go on...

It is a great site to "look" at, but so far I have been unable to afford anything I could actually "use" :-)

If you look to the right of the page, every topic's author is identified in an information box. (Depending on your computer or browser settings, you may need to side-scroll to see it.)
