We are introducing polymer dispersed liquid crystal elastomers (PDLCEs) as a new thermomechanically functional rubber material which can be molded into any arbitrary shape and size. PDLCEs exhibit temperature driven shape memory and due to their easy and practical synthetization method and ability for custom-tailored modifications, they can be applied to a variety of actuating and other applications.
