Memory Wire
This video is about memory wire and textiles. The first part of the video is about different ways of stitching memory wire into fabric. The second part is about the the trial of making a straight 0,2mm Nitinol wire remembering a spiral shape. Therefore the wire was curled up onto a screw and heated at 500°C for 30 minutes. After that the wire was thrown into cold water. Finally you can watch the result. The fabric is moving!
