Nitinol Paperclip - 65 degrees activation
A piece of nitinol wire that you can bend into whatever shape you please. However when you heat it, the wire returns to its pre-set shape - a large paperclip.
The Nitinol wire is 1.0mm thick, and the paperclip is 5cm in length (and about 15cm long when you unfold it).
You can choose between a NiTi (Nickel-Titanium) paperclip, which has an activation temperature of 45 degrees Centrigrade, and a NiTiCu (Nickel-Titanium-Copper) paperclip, which has an activation temperature of 65 degrees Centigrade.
The NiTi version has a lower temperature of activation, which in some circumstances might be an advantage.
The NiTiCu version is easier to bend and deform when it is cold, there is almost no two way memory effect even after many deformation cycles, and it has a better cyclic stability. However it has a higher activation temperature of 65 degrees Centrigrade.
