Tiny little robots could change how we fight #viruses – yes even the Coronavirus!
Today’s Future Talk episode with Liz Buchanan, is all about Nanobots and how they have the potential to change healthcare delivery.
Over the past few years we’ve seen huge advances in #robot technology, including #nanobots – tiny little robots that are so small that you need a microscope to see them. This technology is still in early research lab experiments, but already lab trials are showing that nanobots can be designed to target specific diseases!
Imagine being able to target a specific diseased or malfunctioning cell rather than taking a medication or other treatment that impacts all the cells in your body!
It truly is amazing what the future holds once we have a better understanding of how to design and deploy precision medical techniques. We’re likely 10 years or more away from this type of medicine being commonplace, but this truly is cutting-edge science.
We’re definitely living in the digital age, and technology is changing how we will live but just as importantly, how we battle viruses and disease. And someday, little nanobots may be quietly be working away in our bodies looking for the first signs of problems and correcting them before they develop into major medical issues.
But, of course, we need to test this thoroughly before deploying in humans, as the potential for unintentional harm is an issue, along with security and privacy protocols.
