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 […]

What Are Nanobots? | Nanites for Regeneration

Recently, I went to see the movie Bloodshot and one of the key features of the movie is the use of nanorobots for regeneration, and while the use of nanobots in the movie may have felt like science fiction it may not be that far fetched. If you have not seen Bloodshot and are just […]

Nanorobots & DNA Origami — Dr Shelley Wickham

Most drugs work by flooding the body with a particular molecule, in the hope that they will do their work where they’re most needed, and not damage the rest of the body along the way. What if you could design a programmable, nano-sized robot that could detect where it is and whether it’s safe to […]

Nanorobots propel through the eye

An international team of scientists, some from the “Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems” Lab at the Max-Planck-Instritute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, developed specially coated nano-robots that can be magnetically moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. This has never been achieved before! So far, the transport of these so called nano-vehicles […]

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.

Nanorobots Could Redefine Targeted Cancer Therapies

On www.xtalks.com – Targeting tumors using nanorobots could be the future of cancer treatment thanks to research performed at Polytechnique Montréal, Université de Montréal and McGill University. These researchers have designed nanorobots capable of being injected into a patient’s bloodstream, and delivering a drug directly into cancerous cells.
