    I thought they would print out time. Now that would have been
    impressive?

    But seriously, it's fascinating. I wonder what those materials really are and
    how they responds with the given environment?

    My guess is they are a combination of hydrophylic and hydrophobic materials that introduce strain when submerged in water.
