A robot made of magnetic slime with a turd-like consistency can navigate narrow passages, grasp objects and fix broken circuits.

It could be deployed inside the body to perform tasks such as retrieving objects swallowed by accident.

Hong Kong scientists have created a state-of-the-art “slime robot” that can be magnetically manipulated to retrieve inadvertently ingested objects, among a myriad of other real-world applications.

A case study detailing the cybernetic cutting-edge invention was published recently in the journal “Advanced Functional Materials.”
