Howdy folks and greetings from the Great Plains of North Texas!
Smart metals are a new type of alloy. Most are made of Gallium, Indium, and Tin. The stuff stays liquid at -2 degrees Fahrenheit and -19 C and above.
When a flake of Aluminum is embedded in it the metal becomes mobile and moves itself around! lol...it's true!
It can move in a circle, straight line, or squeeze itself into smaller openings and complex shapes and then reforms back to it's original form. lol.
Does that sound familiar? That's exactly what the T-1000 Terminator model did in Terminator 2!
Of course, the medical field is working on new applications and uses for the metal but the military is also working on it.
Shoot, they say anything we hear or that is allowed to get on the news as far as technology is years behind what the Feds are secretly working on.
So I'm sure they've been working on this for years. We know that China is too because one of the first developers of smart metal was China. The military wants to create self-healing armor for tanks and things like that.
The medical researchers say it can build nano robots out of smart metal to take drugs into certain spots of the body through the blood stream. And many other helpful applications.
And they're confident that they can create a way for it to have it's own embedded power source, I'm not sure how, maybe grabbing elements from the air or some such thing, I don't know, it's too complicated. lol.
But yeah, the military admits that one of their main goals is to create battle robots out of the stuff! They're literally talking about building liquid metal robots.
Can you imagine? They can be blown up and gather back together and keep going.
The first Terminator movie came out in 1984 so they've probably been working on it since before that. That may sound crazy but I've noticed that most wild things we see in syfi movies are based on science or at least scientific theory.
Whether Terminators will be made or not, this is a transformative technology. I just need to find what companies are the most advanced in it so I can invest now before it becomes mainstream!
I reckon this should be an exciting discovery but like most exciting new technologies you have to wonder about the military applications.
Thanks for reading folks, God bless you all!
PS- Check this out guys..a family in Australia found what they thought was a young puppy or fox in their backyard so they took it to a vet and found out it was a full-blooded Dingo.
The poor little guy had deep wounds in his back where a hawk or eagle had grabbed it away from it's family but apparently hadn't been able to hold onto him.
Dingos are on the endangered list so the vet called a conservation group who came and got him, he's now with another Dingo family with similar age playmates.
Is he too cute or what? lol. Here's what the Dingo looks like when they grow up:
