It's alive! A polymer gel has been developed that can generate a peristaltic motion without external stimuli. The motion is produced by dissipating the chemical energy of an oscillating reaction that occurs inside the gel. Although the gel is solely composed of a synthetic polymer, it shows independent motion as if it were alive. The motion of the gel can be harnessed to transport objects with millimeter dimensions (see picture). (Figure Presented).
