While "Transformers" makes the idea of shape shifting robots look easy, the technology to make it real would be more complicated.
"This 'Transformer' would need to maintain electrical connectivity, but yet still be able to move its parts and maintain all of that connectivity," says chemist Jennifer Lalli. "You can't do that with metal wire, because it will break."
A nanotechnology process gives one layer of plastic molecules a positive electrical charge and the next a negative charge. As a result, the Metal Rubber assembles itself.
