Advances in fluid dynamics has given way to a new product called Mechanical Goo. It works like a mechanical object, yet feels gooey to the touch. Like a gear in an engine, the mechanical goo will form a gear-like shape and have the tensile strength of a metal gear, yet it would behave like Silly Putty when it is not in use. Pretty amazing stuff. Its somewhat like Grey Goo, but without the threat of global human extinction.
