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!
