Cables to Stretchy

The title of this article may seem funny and absurd. But indeed it is.

A number of materials researchers from North Carolina State University, USA, is currently developing a new mix of materials that can be used as a conductor of electricity (wires) that can be stretched up to 8-fold stretched its initial size.

Although until now the material is still in the testing phase, but some of their research results reveal that the condition has been achieved. At least the report has been set out in a science journal called Advanced Functional Materials.

In general, the composition of the basic construction material proficiency level is a ‘pipe’ elastic contains metallic ‘liquid’ super conductive (Highly Conductive Liquid Metal Alloy).

Until now researchers are still trying to perfect their findings so they can be produced economically.
