TED: Catarina Mota: Play with smart materials - Catarina Mota (2012)

TED: Catarina Mota: Play with smart materials - Catarina Mota (2012): Ink that conducts electricity; a window that turns from clear to opaque at the flip of a switch; a jelly that makes music. All this stuff exists, and Catarina Mota says: It's time to play with it. Mota leads us on a tour of surprising and cool new materials, and suggests that the way we'll figure out what they're good for is to experiment, tinker and have fun.
