    I heard from Joanna Berzowska (one of the collaborators on the Skorpions project) today. She warned me about the tedious process of making the nitinol work with fibers. I am a bit concerned with the high level of current that it takes to trigger the motion but I’m pressing on. The muscle wire kit I ordered will hopefully be arriving before next weekend so I can start messing around with it. Can’t wait! Thanks to Joanna Berzowska for her help.
