Liquid Metal Slingshot-a Self-Propelled and Controllable Motion



This manuscript reports a new self-propelled motion of liquid metal droplet, which not rely on any external force, and we can change the speed and direction by changing the shape of the surface. This self-propelled and controllable motion is of great significance for the application of liquid metals in nanomachines, robots, targeted therapy, and others.
