Smart supercapacitor fiber with shape memory

Researchers have introduced a new type of fiber-shaped supercapacitor for energy-storage textiles. Thanks to their shape memory, these textiles could potentially adapt to different body types: shapes formed by stretching and bending remain 'frozen', but can be returned to their original form or reshaped as desired.
