    She needs some examples for a use of metal "X",

    metal "x" is soft, plyable, like a steel coat hanger at room temperature, but when its heated it returns to its normal shape.
    Example: when you bend your eyeglasses, you heat the frame and they return to thier normal shape.

    What we need are some other uses for this metal. Im stumped....

    ANy ideas?

    Maybe engeneering or development. Reuse the same piece of metal over and over.

    How about a really cool, almost indestructable robot type guy dude that can travel through time and kick a** and take names and obeys the wishes of it's master?

    Oh wait, it's already been done. California's governor kicked his a** a few years ago /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Branndon hit it on the head...car bodies.

    These metals you call "X" are called memory metals. They are some pretty specific alloys, and are still very much in the development phase.
    They're the future of car bodies and other similar uses. Think about it...some A-hole puts a dent in the side of your car, and all you have to do to fix it is put the heat of a propane torch over it.

    Rather use the other memory metal I saw on History channel.

    Just throw a bucket of hot water on it.
