Sometimes science can just be fun if not edible. Scientists at MIT have developed a process to make pasta that shape-shifts upon cooking. They claim it could save on shipping costs because you might be able to pack these flat noodles into a smaller container (think lasagna noodles stacked up, vs elbows). Fair enough. The real fun is that by adding layers of materials, the pasta can be made to curl up and form different shapes upon being dunked into hot water. They use layers of different materials like gelatin and cellulose and 3D print them. More important is their ability to predict the shape based upon the process or more to make a shape by design and then fabricate it.
