“Drones: They’re not just for spying on you any more. First-person drone racing isn’t a sport yet, but this is the closest we’ll get to watching the Endor speeder bike chase from Return of the Jedi.”
“Remember how blobs of liquid metal morphed into Robert Patrick’s T-1000, the ultimate killing machine in Terminator 2? North Carolina scientists say that sci-fi fantasy is now reality, as a low-voltage current can be used to create morphing electronics.
In the research by a group of scientists at North Carolina State University (NCSU), an alloy of liquid metals was forced to take shapes, driven by a low-voltage electric current. They say that getting control over the surface tension of liquid metals could evolve into morphing and self-healing electronics technology.”
