Microscopic robots built by nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego are engineered to swim throughout the lungs, transport medication, and be employed to resolve serious cases of bacterial pneumonia.
Medical microrobots could aid doctors in providing better illness prevention and treatment. However, the majority of these gadgets are created from synthetic materials that incite in vivo immunological reactions.
Although over a century has gone by since Thomas Edison built the first electric light bulb, his hallmark method of ‘trial and error’ to realize his mission still remains a huge part of present-day inventions.
Researchers at MIT have produced power-dense, low-voltage, artificial muscles that enhance the agility and performance of flying microrobots.
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a phage- and robotics-assisted near-continuous evolution (PRANCE) platform that adjusts to real-time measurements of biomolecular activity.
In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has undergone massive growth. However, despite huge advances, there has been a continuous increase in the power needed to run AI algorithms.
Someday, scientists believe, tiny DNA-based robots and other nanodevices will deliver medicine inside our bodies, detect the presence of deadly pathogens, and help manufacture increasingly smaller electronics.
Robots so tiny that they can manoeuvre through our blood vessels and deliver medications to certain points in the body - researchers have been pursuing this goal for years.
For several decades, fans of science fiction have been enthralled by the concept of “gray goo,” a robot formed of billions of nanoparticles. However, a majority of the scientists have rejected it as merely a wild theory.
Researchers at the University of Toronto Engineering have developed a set of magnetic “tweezers” that can place a nano-scale bead inside a human cell in three dimensions with extraordinary precision.
