Inkjet-Printed Liquid Metal Could Bring Soft Robots To Life

And when these researchers say "liquid-metal alloys," that's just the nice way of saying they are developing mimetic polyalloy for the T-1000. eek!

New research shows how inkjet-printing technology can be used to mass-produce electronic circuits made of liquid-metal alloys for "soft robots" and flexible electronics. Elastic technologies could make possible a new class of pliable robots and stretchable garments that people might wear to interact with computers or for therapeutic purposes.
