It's squishy, synthetic, flexible, mostly water and almost as tough as rubber. No, it's not "flubber" — it's a hydrogel, and now scientists at The University of Akron are exploring new biomedical uses for this polymer-based product. Dr. Jie Zheng, associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, and Dr. Robert Weiss, Hezzleton E. Simmons professor and chair of polymer engineering, are among the most recent to contribute to the growing research of...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists have engineered a soft autonomous robot that crawls across surfaces similar to how an earthworm moves. The robot developed by researchers at MIT, Harvard University and Seoul National University is made almost entirely of soft materials, giving it the ability to be stepped on and inch away without a dent. The "Meshworm" robot has an "artificial muscle" that was created from wire made of nickel and titanium. Researchers...

How nickel-titanium nanometric-size particles change back to their memorized shape University of Constance physicists Daniel Mutter and Peter Nielaba have visualized changes in shape memory materials down to the nanometric scale in an article about to be published in EPJ B´. Metallic alloys can be stretched or compressed in such a way that they stay deformed once the strain on the material has been released. Only shape memory alloys, however, can return to their original shape...
