Smart materials exist. These are materials like ink that conducts electricity, a window that turns from clear to opaque at the flip of a switch and jelly that makes music. Catarina Mota (TEDGlobal, July 2012) inspires amateurs to use these smart materials and play with them, tinker at home and just experiment with it. The talk is right up the alley of TU Delft’s resident McGuyver Scientist Rolf Hut (TEDxDelft 2011 performer). Get to know these smart materials now.
