Mr – Super Goop – Fluid

So there’s this fluid see? Only it’s not really a fluid, it’s more of a magnetic sludge. And when you apply a magnetic force it turns into a thick clay. Meet MR Fluid, or magneto-rheological fluid, to give it its proper name.

Apparently they’re going to use it in everything from suspension systems to washing machine dampers and robots. [via madville]
