How to Move Metal (with No Contact)

A team at FLEET University of Wollongong has found a way to move metal in any direction, without contact.

"The non-contact manipulation of liquid metal allows us to exploit and visualise electromagnetism in new ways. The ability to control streams of liquid metals in a non-contact manner also enables new strategies for shaping electronically conductive fluids for advanced manufacturing and dynamic electronic structures” said Wollongong PhD student Yahua He , the lead author of the study.
