Hi all :) Im just trying to get my head around an initial electronics solution with a project that would require 100s of little silent actuators. Specifically Im trying to figure out if an LED matrix such as the one in the link I have provided would work with using some shape memory alloy(SMA). Id guess that I would also need to use a Mosfet to get the extra current at the end but have no idea if this would work with the SMA.

Link for a FET output for the Nitinol wire SMA http://spaghettionastick.wordpress.com/2011/10/17/nitinol-flexinol-muscle-wire-shape-memory-alloy/
So anyway would be quite interesting but is it possible? adam
