Phase-Changing Robots Move from Hard to Soft

July 15, 2014 10:42 am | by Massachusetts Institute of Technology | News | Comments

In the movie "Terminator 2," the shape-shifting T-1000 robot morphs into a liquid state to squeeze through tight spaces or to repair itself when harmed. Now a phase-changing material built from wax and foam, and capable of switching between hard and soft states, could allow even low-cost robots to perform the same feat...
