Other Supplementary Material for this manuscript includes the following:

  • Movie S1 (.mp4 format). The volume change of the BIPMTD under UV light illumination.
  • Movie S2 (.mp4 format). The observation of the BIPMTD illuminated for 30 s through different UV filters with transmissions of 25, 50, 90, and 100% (no filter).
  • Movie S3 (.mp4 format). Transportation of a glass sphere (Ø = 1mm) through UV light–driven volume change of the BIPMTD.
  • Movie S4 (.mp4 format). Demonstration of the BIPMTD as a pick-and-drop material for a circular glass slide with a diameter of 15 mm and a thickness of 0.12 mm.
  • Movie S5 (.mp4 format). Demonstration of the BIPMTD as a pick-and-drop material for an empty Eppendorf tube (XC63.1, Carl Roth GmbH + Co. KG) with a volume of 1.5 ml.
