You’ve heard of smart phones, smart meters, smart watches… even smart fridges. Well now it’s the turn of smart materials.

In the future, solid objects will react, sense, change and move according to their surroundings. This won’t be a result of clever robotics or electronics, but rather the fundamental properties of the stuff itself. In years to come, we will be living in self-regulating houses, riding self-fixing bicycles, and driving on self-illuminating roads, all thanks to these so-called ‘smart materials’. These are metals, plastics, fabrics and fluids that react to the outside world without any human involvement, and they promise to change the way we live.

In this talk I will be showing you the smart materials that exist today, and demonstrating how they will make the material world around us smarter tomorrow. Expect to see matter doing things you’ve never seen it do before! I’ll also discuss some of the wider implications of smart materials, and what they might mean for society.
