"Shape changing materials" is a workshop where the students experimented with NiTi shape memory alloys such as springs, memory wire and muscle wire. Theirs tools include conductive threads, power supply, batteries and sewing machines. Apart from the physical prototypes, focused on wearable applications, the students simulated digitally the fabric behavior, using algorithmic design software.
