Computer simulations of polymer gels containing spirobenzopyran chromophores show that these materials can undergo both 3D shape changes and directed motion under non-uniform illumination. By illuminating the samples through photomasks, these gels can be molded remotely and reversibly into a variety of shapes. Furthermore, repeated motion of light in a specific direction results in the directed motion of the samples.
