Magnetic elastomeric composites able to bend, tighten or rotate when exposed to laser, diffused light or sunlight. What would happen if the objects that surround us could change according to the light stimuli they receive? This question is answered by researchers from the Faculty of Engineering of Tufts University who have developed magnetic elastomeric composites [...]
