Scientists design material that can store energy like an eagle's grip

Thu, 08/09/2018 - 16:46
What do a flea and an eagle have in common? They can store energy in their feet without having to continuously contract their muscles to then jump high or hold on to prey. Now scientists have created materials that can store energy this way, be squeezed repeatedly without damage, and even change shape if necessary.
