Is This The Terminator? New Robot Has Self-Healing Powers

“In this research, we propose to construct soft robotics entirely out of self-healing elastomers. On the basis of healing capacities found in nature, these polymers are given the ability to heal microscopic and macroscopic damage.” That doesn’t sound so bad … unless you add the following three words: “I’ll be back.” Scientists at the Brije...
