Thubber uses droplets of liquid metal to dissipate heat

Although we may hear a lot about the promise of flexible electronics, there's at least one challenge that still has to be overcome – heat dissipation. After all, what good is a stretchable smartphone, for instance, if its processor gets so hot that it won't work? It was with such scenarios in mind that scientists at Carnegie Mellon University created a highly thermally-conductive rubber, known as "thubber."

You might not think of a wedding cake as being the type of thing that gets vandalized, but that's exactly what happened to a replica of the cake that was presented to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in 1947. Now, thanks to 3D scanning technology, a super-accurate copy of that replica is being recreated out of sugar.
