The oxide skin on gallium-based liquid metals, shown here in suspension, give the materials the ability to hold a shape and to be reconfigured into new shapes that can maintain electrical conductivity. Scientists at the Air Force Research Laboratory have demonstrated the capacity for liquid metal alloys to be flowed through embedded material channels to create physically reconfigurable antennas and electronic circuits.
