Shape-shifting robot melts itself to escape lab jail
A shape-shifting robot that looks like a cross between a Lego figure and the T-1000 from Terminator 2 has been filmed melting itself to escape through the bars of a miniature jail cell.
Researchers in the US and China developed a material that reacts to magnetic fields and could eventually be used in medical procedures. The robot can also jump and climb, said the team.
