       [normzone], the point of using shape-memory metal is that you just heat the car a bit and it springs back to the original shape.

       Is not the delight of actually causing damage while playing bumper cars not worth the extra price needed for the special alloy? especially here where we can laugh in the face of added costs, since we aren't actually making them ourselves?

       shame really but the bumpability of the dodgems would be severely reduced.
