Abstract

Researches using unique materials to move or deform objects are now popular. There are generally two approaches to accomplish this achievement. By implanting actuators, such as bio-metals, directly into the object is a common solution. In this way, actuators can disturb the materials behaviors or characteristics and ruin some performances. On the other hand, researches that enable to move or deform objects without implanting any actuators directly into the material also have been accomplished. In this approach, magnetic force is appropriate and useful for moving or deforming objects.
