New self-healing soft robot material

Metallic polymer soft robotics development is a leap forward Metal Tech News - April 20, 2023

Engineers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a soft polymer impregnated with gallium-indium liquid metal and silver micro-flakes to create a conductive material with self-healing properties. This marks a big step in the advancement of new materials for robotics, electronics, medicine, and the lesser-known field of "softbotics."

This study, published in Nature Electronics, showcases the f...
