Inspired by T-1000, the shape-shifting android from
'Terminator', Chinese scientists created a new type of robot powered by liquid
metal, as footage filmed in Hefei, China, shows.
It is the first liquid-metal-powered robot that can move outside a liquid environment.
The palm-sized prototype consists of a plastic wheel, a small lithium battery and a liquid-metal droplet.
Voltage from the embedded battery alters the liquid metal's centre of gravity.
