Bend, mold, and shape objects to fit your needs with smart materials.
What makes these materials so smart? According to Fashioning Technology, they "are responsive and dynamic. [Some] have the ability to change color, shape, and size in response to their environments... these materials offer a range of possibilities for crafting objects with an autonomous, secret life of their own."
We've rounded up our favorites into a Smart Materials collection, including space-age plastic, air-cured rubber, and electro-luminescent wire and tape.
