A little cool thing called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken. When cold, you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water), it will take the original shape.

Why start the timer 2 seconds before dropping it in?

Imagine the outside of your car is made with this, or something similar. Got a door ding? Splash some warm water on it. You might still be missing paint though, but whatever.

It's just called nitol.

This is nitinol, a metal that reforms the shape it was cast in when it is heated.

Why the timer?
User avatar #64 to #63 - watermelonkittie (05/23/2013) [-]
That's to prove that the video isn't shopped or sped up in any way, I think

Thanks

That, and to also show how quickly the paperclip can resume it's first shape.

Looks like they replicated the car repair system from Carmageddon.

Hell yeah, you looking forward to Reincarnation?

I thought that project died a long time ago?
User avatar #71 to #70 - certifiedidiot ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
Nope, it got funded on Kickstarter, goal was 400k and it earned in around 650k, I backed it with a thousand myself.

i cant science good, what is this?
#84 to #45 - anonymous (05/23/2013) [-]
I think it`s a NITI wire, you can manipulate it with cold water and regains its original with hot water or saliva, because the NITI wires are used in orthodontics treatments

The timer is useful for 2 reasons :
>To show that the sequence is not reversed
>To show that the sequence was not speeded up

>speeded
