Fun Matlab Contest Entry

Meredith and über fun undergrads Vivian Lu and John Deng have put together a video and entered it in a Matlab video competition.  They show how mechanochromic polymers can be interfaced with rduengo, Matlab, a cheap camera and a homebuilt stepper tension stage to create an inexpensive and self-regulating strain gauge.  Variants on this approach promise to be quite useful for our long-term research interests, but they just did this because it was fun![youtube][/youtube]
