Incredible. I'm curious as to how much voltage can be delivered through the wire before it melts.

I had a similar "vision" Greg about the use of these wires. I still think it all looks like magic.

I was especially impressed with the extruded metal process to make wires and to connect circuits.  I could see an application for rapid prototype PCB's being made in the future (without the use of the old 'green wire' technique).

TJ – good statement; this IS jaw-dropping.  I wonder how well it might stand up to any prolonged use, as it appears to be pretty "fluid" (or, damageable).  Also, I have no idea how stable ( or, safe & non-toxic?) Gallium is.  I do know from my work with touch-screens and LCDs that Indium is pretty inert.

TJ, you might be surprised how many times the NCSU press release got republished with the word "Terminator" in the title and lead paragraph. To be honest, that wasn't the first thing I thought of.

Come on, you KNOW you thought that first when you read the title.  OK, set that aside, and the technology is jaw-dropping.  The future is going to be fun!

Latest Analysis
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
US factory orders for durable goods tumbled 3.4% in December on a big drop in new bookings for commercial aircraft, according to data the Commerce Department released Tuesday.
