Heat-sensitive 3D paper (swell paper)

This paper has an unusual coating that swells up when heat is applied. It's normally used by printing on it with a standard inkjet or laser printer, then exposing it to a very bright light.  The dark areas absorb more energy, and become raised.  I also experiment with the material in a laser cutter.  - Source of the paper used in this video - Video about the U Michigan group

  1. Hi Ben, apologies for using this forum but I was trying to find a contact for you to ask about some fMRI eyetracking kit you supplied to the University of Auckland (a long time ago I know!) looks like you are doing lots of other amzing stuff now, but if you have 2 mins it would be great to ask you some quick questions
