Muscle Wire (Nitinol) in HOT Water

Introduction: Muscle Wire (Nitinol) in HOT Water

Sometimes called the Smart Alloy, Muscle Wire or Memory Metal, is an alloy that "remembers" it shape. You can reshape the wire, but when heated it returns to the preset shape. Ever wonder how someone bends a spoon with their mind? Same metal.
