This is a more scientific read, but quite exciting in terms of what it holds for the future of manufacturing, medicine, and more.
From Science Daily:
Gels can be found everywhere: from contact lenses to ink, from sensors to medical electrodes and even breast implants. Their ultra-absorbent properties, flexibility, and grip make them appealing to researchers and manufacturers. They consist of a network of solids that can retain up to 99% of liquid while maintaining their shape. EPFL researchers have just published how to combine two gels in such a way that they can monitor and change, almost at will, the properties of the new combined material.
