I think there's use for researching theories behind self-forming structures. I would hope that "pasta that forms itself" is not the ultimate end goal for this technology.

Research isn't always about solving a problem. Sometimes, especially with NSF, the outcomes are educational for the students involved. And not every paper that comes out of a research project is exactly related in an obvious way to the goals outlined in the proposal.

Sex runs the show. Makes new uses of new tech faster than the performers can get their dirndles and lederhosen off.

Wasted space during shipping. Flat packed could fit more product into the same size shipment, lowering transportation costs and fuel emissions per package. Think of it as the Ikea approach to pasta.
