Biometal: Robotic Muscle

Made from a nickel-titanium alloy, and highly processed for electrical activation and long life, the thin black thread-like BioMetal
acts as an artificial muscle. When powered, the BioMetal contracts
. When power turns off, the BioMetal quickly cools and the wire extends again to its longer, starting length.
