A new 3D printed material is making a move. Scientists have embedded tiny particles of magnetic iron into a silicon rubber to create a substance that can be 'programmed' by a magnetic field. By 3D printing this into any shape, the researchers can use a computer model to generate a wide range of fast movements. With potential uses in robotics, engineering and medicine, this is an exciting new addition to the field of transformable materials.
