  • A steam engine made from cardboard, running with proper boiling steam - is that really possible? Oh yes!!!

  • The heart of this unusual thermal engine is a thin ring of Nitinol wire (0.3mm). Some warm water is enough to make the Nitinol Engine run. Nitinol is an alloy of nickel and titanium which has exceptional properties: at low temperatures it is soft and bendy, but as soon as it is heated above a certain transition temperature, it instantly becomes hard and flexible like spring steel.
