Intelligent materials

Intelligent materials

Materials that are able to adapt to their environment by altering their properties. Example of intelligent materials include liquid crystal glass, which changes from transparent to opaque upon application of a current, and thermochromic glazing, which changes transparency in response to ambient temperatures.
