A recent discovery of a new material has led to a major advancement in the field of 'softbotics.'

Carnegie Mellon University engineers have created a pliable material that acts like metal by having electrical conductivity and the capacity to repair itself. This is the very first of its kind to possess enough adhesion in its electric current to be able to work with digital electronics and motors, as evidenced in their publication in Nature Electronics. This advance marks a huge development in softbotics, robotics, electronics, and medicine.
