Scientists have long been amazed by the skin of a sea cucumber, which can switch from stiff to floppy, or vice versa, in mere seconds in order to help the animal defend itself against predators. Inspired by this quick-change act, researchers have developed a new material that can also switch between rigid and flexible states. They hope that this material, or one like it, might someday be used as part of medical devices that are implanted inside the body.
