A new study by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University has brought us one step closer
to the familiar shapeshifting of the T-1000 robot from Terminator movie.
In an article published in the journal Matter, the research team presents the tiny lego-like robot that can
switch between states of matter with the power of magnets.

Modern robotics knows both rigid and soft robots. The first ones are made of hard metal or plastic
cases, while others have more flexibility. Soft robots achieve enhanced functionality thanks to their structure,
but they are also often weaker and more difficult to control.

According to Dr. Chengfeng Pan, the leader of the study, robots have more functions if we give them a chance
switch between liquid and solid states.
