The Future is now—Shape Memory Alloys

SMAs are specially formulated mixtures of metal that can re-work themselves back into their original shapes after being deformed.
Stanford Advanced Materials's insight:

SMAs are specially formulated mixtures of metal that can re-work themselves back into their original shapes after being deformed. 

SMAs have been included in aerospace designs for quieter engines, shape-memory coupling for oil line and water pipes, the seats of cars, the “muscles” of robots and more.
