“Hydrogels are soft, wet, biocompatible, and can form more friendly interfaces with human organs,” -- Xuanhe Zhao (MIT associate professor of mechanical engineering and civil and environmental engineering)

Oh how great, that is so comforting!

I nearly forgot that hydrogels are also silent, cold and unfeeling hunters capable of surprising fish in a terrifying invisible prison. Luckily, MIT are developing this just for surgical purposes though, so no worries!
