Looked Like An Ordinary Paperclip. When He Put It In Hot Water…WHOA!

Andy Elliott from his mist8k YouTube channel shows us what happens to this seemingly ordinary paperclip once he bends it out of shape and then places in hot water….. I never expected anything to react like that! This makes me wonder what other materials have such special reaction properties. Wish I had paid better attention in science class!

Nitinol, also known as memory metal. In this experiment I bent the metal in to a completely different shape and when I drop it in hot water the atoms re align to there original position. Very cool! People use this material for magic tricks to hack spoons so the bend bend.
