Multi-step pathways—which consist of a sequence of reconfigurations of a structure—are central to the functionality of various natural and artificial systems. Such pathways execute autonomously in self-guided processes such as protein folding1 and self-assembly2–5, but have previously required external control to execute in macroscale mechanical systems, provided by, for example, actuators in robotics6–9 or manual folding in origami8,10–12. Here we demonstrate shape-changing, macroscale… Expand
