Changeable plastic mimics sea cucumber's trick
 
I just read about this article:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080306/...DR.044nl.s0NUE

Isn't this coo!?!
Any thoughts of potential uses besides the ones mentioned in this article??

Hull plating :D
I wonder how they want to keep it dry long enough to place the brain electrode...

Now now... that just won't do... the Delta flyer will turn to rubber and collapse whenever Tom Paris wants to fly into a water planet....

Well, it'd explain how they got it into the shuttlebay along with the other shuttles. A quick squirt of water, and *SQUISH* it fits right in :lol:

"sea cucumbers can change easily from hard and rigid to soft and floppy,"

...kind of like men.

a certain part of men, you mean :D

I just saw on Survivorman on the Discovery Channel how the sea cucumber secretes a white liquid cream type of thing which acts as an antiseptic... oh boy, the direction this thread just took...
