That seems an odd move for a company that has recently cut 36 per cent of its workforce and needs government financial aid as well as a helping hand from Fiat to keep it alive.
No doubt Chrysler wishes it really was helping to fund the development of a super-robot sent from the future to save mankind, rather than just a Hollywood movie.
After all think what a technological advantage self-regenerating, self-shaping liquid metal technology would be for Chrysler. No more tooling costs, vastly reduced development cycles, and customers wouldn’t have to take the car to a body shop after a crash – it would just repair itself.
On second thoughts, Chrysler, don’t worry about Obama or Fiat – the Terminator will be your salvation.
