This book discusses the core principles and practical applications of a brand new machine category: liquid-metal soft machines and motors. After a brief introduction on the conventional soft robot and its allied materials, it presents the new conceptual liquid-metal machine, which revolutionizes existing rigid robots, both large and small. It outlines the typical features of the soft liquid-metal materials and describes the various transformation capabilities, mergence of separate metal droplets, self-rotation and planar locomotion of liquid-metal objects under external or internal mechanism. Further, it introduces a series of unusual phenomena discovered while developing the shape changeable smart soft machine and interprets the related mechanisms regarding the effects of the shape, size, voltage, orientation and geometries of the external fields to control the liquid-metal transformers. Moreover, the book illustrates typical strategies to construct a group of different advanced functional liquid-metal soft machines, since such machines or robots are hard to fabricate using rigid-metal or conventional materials. With highly significant fundamental and practical findings, this book is intended for researchers interested in establishing a general method for making future smart soft machine and accompanying robots.

Biografie
Dr. Jing Liu is a JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Tokyo's Graduate School of Education. Before joining the University of Tokyo, Dr. Liu received his Doctoral Degree in International Development from the Graduate School of International Development, Nagoya University, Japan in 2013, where he subsequently served as an Assistant Professor from 2013 to 2017. His dissertation, titled "The Development of Inequality in Public School Admission: Public Discourses on Zexiao and Practices in Urban China" received the Best Dissertation Award from the Institute for International Studies in Education, School of Education, University of Pittsburgh, the US and the Asia Pacific Research Prize (Commendation) from the Asia Pacific Forum, Awaji Conference Japan in 2013. 
His research areas include sociology of education, international and comparative education, and education policy studies. He began his studies on education in 2007, and since then has accumulated considerable experience in researching educational development in China, East, and South-East Asia. His current research project examines education reform to promote resource sharing and school-to-school collaboration in urban China. In the past five years, Dr. Liu has published in leading international journals and chapters of book series. His latest article, titled "Constructing resource sharing collaboration for quality public education in urban China: Case study of school alliance in Beijing" will be published by The International Journal of Educational Development in March 2018.
