A group of scientists from the Universities of Sussex and Swansea have created a way to manipulate liquid metal, with which you can move it and shape, forming complex three-dimensional objects. In the future, it can be used in robotics and digital devices..
The T-1000 (TERMINATOR Explained)
The team presented an experiment that could be the first step towards creating a prototype of a self-healing robot from the movie «Terminator 2». The bottom line is that with the help of electric charges scientists have learned the shape and movement of liquid metal. Researchers believe that in the future, a new kind of material can be programmed to change shape..
The opportunity allows not only to control the metal as a conductor, but also its properties, phases, surface tension, and also to use it as a conductor. In this case, manipulations can be carried out at room temperature…
According to scientists, programmable materials have great potential for applications in computer graphics, intelligent electronics, flexible robotics and digital devices. Long term..
Scientists are increasingly using liquid substances for unique inventions. State University mechanical engineers create a self-healing filter that keeps bacteria and gases out.
