The muscle wire demo kit provides a clear and simple way of introducing the principles of the shape memory effect. The kit uses two pieces of thin smart wire connected to a lever on either side of a pivot. When a battery is connected to one of the smart wires, the wire contracts (by about 5%) and the lever moves. If the battery is disconnected, and current is now passed through the other wire, the lever moves back in the opposite direction.
