Flexinol Cat

Flexinol Cat Alexandria Smith

Flexinol is difficult to use, but super cool!! I definitely need to explore this material more!


Moldable foam (for the cat)

roofing copper (for the button)

Scotch tape(for the tail)

Flexinol (in the tail)

Things I learned:

  1. Wires should be closer together in order to make the flexinol strong enough to move the tail
  2. The tape I used was too thick to show large movement
  3. Foam is super cool, but also super dangerous.
  4. Flexinol burns very quickly!
