自动伸缩衬衫 Self-shortening Shirts

An Italian fashion house has recently manufactured a shirt that shortens its own sleeves when the weather gets warm. Before you get excited and rush out to buy a new set of clothes for the beach, consider the price: US$4,000 per shirt.

一家意大利时装公司最近生产出一款衬衫,只要天气变热,它的袖子就会缩短。在你兴奋地冲出去想添购一套新的海滩装之前,先考虑一下它的售价:一件衬衫4000美元。

So how does the new shirt work? Well, it's made from a mixture of nylon and an alloy called nitinol. Clothes containing this alloy can be twisted into any shape, but always return to their original shape when heated to a certain temperature. If the original shirt has short sleeves, when the temperature rises, so will the sleeves.

这种新衬衫是什么原理?它是用尼龙与一种名为 “镍钛诺”的合金混合制成的。含有这种合金的衣物可以扭曲成任何形状,但只要加热到一定的温度就会恢复到原来的形状。如果衬衫原本是短袖,那么温度上升时,袖口也会向上缩。

Even if you roll the shirt into a ball and sit on it, all you need to do is to give it a quick blow with a hairdryer and it returns to its original shape. This has the added bonus that the shirt will never need ironing. It is also washable, totally non-allergenic and, of course, guaranteed never to stretch, unless you sit in the refrigerator.

即使你把衬衫揉成一团坐在上面,只要用吹风机很快地吹一下,它就会恢复到原来的形状。这有一个好处就是这种衬衫永远不用烫。它也可以水洗,完全不会引起过敏,而且只要你不坐在冰箱里,这种衬衫保证不会撑大。
