Materials Science: Engineers make adaptable, lightweight materials with 4D printing

Envision smart materials that can transform from being firm as wood to as delicate as a wipe – and furthermore change shape. Rutgers University-New Brunswick engineers have made adaptable, lightweight materials with 4D printing that could prompt better shock absorption, morphing airplane or drone wings, soft robotics and tiny implantable biomedical gadgets. Their exploration is…
