Researchers Have Invented A Building That Actually Changes Shape In The Rain.

Generally, we don't like to think that the materials our buildings are made out of would move under any circumstances. As cool as a shapeshifting office building might be, it seems like less of a great idea once you have to actually be inside that building, right?

But what if you could have a building that changed shape and color without affecting its structural integrity? Designer Chao Chen has introduced the concept for a building facade that shapeshifts when water touches it. It would be added as a final layer to the outside of a building, showing off colors and a variety of shapes on a rainy day. It's an interesting idea, and it looks awesome in motion. Check out the video below.
