Plants provide model for new shape-changing materials

...to make a dive towards the intended victim. As the raptor changes gear to fly southward at lightening speed, it must sense what the outside forces and pressures are for its trajectory. Similarly, for an aircraft wing, engineers would need a material that's mechanically flexible. But the designers also need...
