Nanorobotics & Nanotechnology | Big Changes in Small Science

Nanorobotics & Nanotechnology | Big Changes in Small Science Explained Nanorobotics is the technology of creating machines or robots at or close to the scale of a nanometer – 1 billionth of a meter. More specifically, nanorobotics refers to the still largely theoretical nanotechnology engineering discipline of designing and building nanorobots. These aren’t the fictional […]

Cell-like nanorobots: interview with UC San Diego nanoengineers

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed tiny ultrasound-powered robots that can swim through blood, removing harmful bacteria and the toxins they produce. Berta Esteban-Fernández de Ávila and Professor Joseph Wang from the Department of NanoEngineering at UC San Diego describe the project in this video.

The Nano Robots Inside You

Inside of you, at all times, there are trillions of natural nano robots walking around, taking out the trash, and packaging strands of DNA. Below the calm, ordered exterior of a living organism lies a complex collection of molecular machines working together to create something greater than themselves. Physicist and author of “Life’s Ratchet” Peter […]
