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.

it's there to make sure the footage isn't fast-forwarded

why would you start the timer if you were going to wait that long, utterly useless
User avatar #23 to #17 - dylandiekunst (05/23/2013) [-]

It's like a timestamp, it proves it's happening in real time, and is not sped up, so yeah, the timer was useful.

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

That's to prove that the video isn't shopped or sped up in any way, I think

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

Looks like they replicated the car repair system from Carmageddon.
