Muscle Wire Functional Model (Nitinol-Thermo Machine)
The wheels, the wire and the propeller turn quickly. But where is the engine?
The Solution: The wire of nickel and titanium (Ni-Ti-nol) is itself a motor. It stretches when it dives into warm water and relaxes when it cools in the air. The power that comes into being sets everything in motion. Therefore, it is also called ‘muscle wire’.
The functional model is very easy to build with the prefabricated materials, so it is suitable for primary school, too.
Required skills: gluing and assembling.
Size: approx. 130 x 110 x 200 mm, 1 piece
