    Octopus-inspired material morphs from flat to 3D
    Futurity: Research News
    A cephalopod is able to change its shape to blend into its surroundings through activation of its papillae—protuberances that extend from the body by contraction of the erector muscles within. The new method mimics that by combining two materials—a ...
