'Terminator'-style liquid metal could heal severed nerves
Researchers have developed a new technique to bridge the gap between the two ends of a cut nerve with liquid metal.
Biomedical researchers in China announced the promising use of liquid metal to bridge the gap between the two ends of a cut nerve and added that it is a futuristic way of improving on current methods of nerve rehab that could prevent long-term disabilities, CNET reported.
However, the team from Tsinghua University admitted that a lot of testing needs to be done on the liquid metal method of healing, which is similar to the speculative science and technology of 1991's 'Terminator 2', particularly with respect to safety.
