- A "spring" in a box that does not bend bonds slightly but use them to their full extent, that is break them fully.
- Basically a direct application of chemomechanical converters (same issue with structural passive material overhead)
- Problem of "Low" energy absorption limit of crystolecule springs
- Maximizing metamaterial toughness
- dissipation into heat possible but wasteful (not a spring)
- Packaged in microcomponents?
- Reason for refrainment from using elastomers: Consistent design for external limiting factors
- Macroscale crash shock absorption: what normally goes into plastic deformation heat (picture crushed metal in a car crash test) goes into cool (reversible) bond breaking.
- More complex direction independent (anisotropic) design in Elasticity emulation.
- controllable lock and release
