Scientists are building an army of tiny cancer-fighting robots
niedziela, 19 lutego 2017 08:08

Researchers at Phillips Innovative Technologies in Hamburg, Germany have created a way to manipulate each robot in a swarm individually and assign them specific tasks using magnetic fields. Previously, it was difficult to precisely control the microscopic devices because they would all behave the same way when controlled by the same magnetic field. "Our method may enable complex manipulations inside the human body," study lead author Jürgen Rahmer told Live Science.
