It was some time ago now that I didn't heard about SMA or muscle wire... it sounds interesting and not only for robotics but... for some other unusual applications...

Glad to have captured your interest. Let us know what you find on YouTube regarding its potential use. Funny, isn't it how something mentioned in an article can promote further innovation. I love this job!
