Researchers in Singapore have done what most materials scientists can only dream about: They ran their project over with a car. But this act wasn’t born of frustration. Rather, it demonstrated the durability of pressure sensors made from eutectic gallium indium, or eGaIn, a metal that’s liquid at room temperature (ACS Sens. 2016, DOI: 10.1021/acssensors.6b00115). To create their device, researchers at the National University of Singapore . . .
