Accidentally swallowed a magnetic ball? Not to worry: Hong Kong scientists have created a state-of-the-art “slime robot” that can be magnetically manipulated to retrieve inadvertently ingested objects, among a myriad of other real-world applications.
A case study detailing the cybernetic cutting-edge invention was published recently in the journal “Advanced Functional Materials.”
“The ultimate goal is to deploy it like a robot,” the goo-bot’s co-creator, Li Zhang, of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, told the Guardian.
Zhang and his team reportedly concocted the revolutionary ooze by mixing neodymium magnet particles with household detergent borax and the resin polyvinyl alcohol, the first ingredient so it can be controlled magnetically, Reuters reported. They then coated the toxic magnetic particles with silica to hypothetically make them safe for use inside the human body.
