[Xinhua]Terminator-style transformable machine developed in China

Chinese scientists have developed liquid metal machines that can change form like the shape-shifting T-1000robot in the movie Terminator 2.

Researchers from the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the medical school of Tsinghua University found a liquid metal can "eat" substances and then propel itself like a self-fueled motor.

The finding, which may pave the way for the development of a liquid metal robot, was published in the Advanced Materials journal.

None that I could find. I know, I'm disappointed as well. Found a vid link but it doesn't give any details, added to OP.

Don't you mean, "Say... That's a nice bike... "
