Super-strong artificial muscles pave way for robot domination11/16/2012
The vision in "The Terminator" of killer robots with rippling muscles conquering humanity maybe wasn't so far off the mark. An international team of scientists led by Ray Baughman, a nanotechnology researcher at the University of Texas in Dallas, have created tiny artificial muscles that are 200 times stronger than human muscles of the same size. Made from ropes of carbon nanotubes filled with paraffin, the "muscles" could help develop lightweight, compact motors, be used in small medical devices, and lend robot faces more natural-looking faces. Let's hope they won't enable an army of super-strong machines to turn us into their slaves. [Source]
