Twist it, turn it, bend it or even mould it – this paperclip is going to get back into its original shape. It is made up of Nitinol, which is also known as nickel-titanium or Shape Memory Metal (SMA). When it comes to Shape Memory Metals, they can be deformed at a particular temperature and then restored into their original shapes in another one.
