Heat-Activated Paper Clips
These Office Paper Clips Will Amuse Bored Office Workers

By: Ian Andrew Panganiban (Star) Jun 18, 13

Office paper clips are used for one specific function, but it’s also a product many bored office workers use to kill time.

The ‘Nitinol Paperclip’ is the office paper clip that’ll amuse many bored corporate personnel. The paper clip is made from nitinol wire, which is a metal that returns to its pre-set shape once heated at the appropriate temperature. Individuals can bend the Nitinol Paperclip into any shape they desire.

Regular paper clips get bent out of shape once used, but that won’t be an issue with the Nitinol Paperclips. The paper clips come in NiTi (Nickel-Titanium), which reshapes itself at temperatures of 45 degrees Centigrade and the NiTiCu (Nickel-Titanium-Copper), which reshapes itself at temperatures of 65 degrees Centigrade.
