Can Nanobots Change the way Medicine is Introduced to our Bodies?admin
Researchers from China, working in combination with South Korean and Swiss Institutes have developed nickel coated Nanobots that are steered wirelessly by electromagnetic fields. These myopic bots (seen through a microscope) are 40 microns wide by 100 microns long and might well be the future of medicine and how it’s introduced to our bodies. Because of the wireless controls, these Nanobots can transport medicine to specifically targeted areas within the body, such as our eyes, brains, hearts, etc… Watch out world the next thing we’ll be discussing is how researchers are developing mind control Nanobots.
All jokes aside, these micro robots can swing through blood for medical purposes and are the next hot topic in the biotechnology community. Other microbots can carry medicine, but their spiral shape and smaller bodies limit how much can carry. Magnetically steered robots inside living animals have also been tested before. What makes these microbots unique? Size! Zhang Li, a researcher on the project, explains that “a microbot is like a vehicle that ships drugs directly to the affected area. And I want to design a truck, not a car.” Larger robots mean more medicine delivered. Human trials of these robots are likely decades away, but the robots have been tested in rabbits and mice.
Below is discussion published by TEDMED about this latest technology, take a look at your leisure. On a side note, the creativity of Science Fiction has allowed us to explore our minds and develop such technologies as Nanobots (microbots). Don’t forget science fiction novels written decades ago about Nanobots being developed for mind control and how they changed the world, could possibly come true one day. We’re just saying.
