4D Printing: Materials That Make Themselves

See self-assembly and 4D printing in action

“A part on the outside of a spaceship that morphs, rather than requiring
an astronaut to perform a risky maneuver. Plumbing pipes able to bend
and flex based on the needs of the water flowing through them. Furniture
that assembles itself, no screwdriver required. Buildings with the
ability to repair themselves when something goes awry.”

Interesting advancement in materials science; materials that can transform themselves given a certain type and amount of stimuli.
