The capabilities of smart materials are exceptional. Smart materials are making it easier than ever before to connect, communicate, and automate our lives. Imagine being able to choose walls that change their color depending on the temperature, windows that turn opaque, and pianos that can be rolled back into the wall, on their own.
Some of the applications of smart materials may have been the realm of science fiction till not that long ago, but are now slowly but steadily entering the mainstream global technological scenario.
Smart materials, simply put, are materials that exhibit smart behavior. A smart material can perceive a stimulus in its surroundings and produce a reaction in a useful, dependable, duplicable, and usually reversible fashion.
