Flexible antenna

“NC State researchers have developed a flexible antenna that can be manipulated in all kinds of ways and then retain its original form. Conventional antennas that we find on TVs, radios and other devices are usually long and rigid. The fact that they can snap easily limits the possibilities of their usage. These new antennas consist of a liquid metal alloy of Gallium and Indium injected into a flexible casing that is made of materials according to the antenna's desired purpose. Because the metal alloy is a liquid, it can flex right along with its casing and still have the properties of an antenna.” Read about it at http://blogs.lib.ncsu.edu/preston/entry/flexible_antenna
