Smart microrobots that can adapt to their surroundings

Scientists have developed tiny elastic robots that can change shape depending on their surroundings. Modeled after bacteria and fully biocompatible, these robots optimize their movements so as to get to hard-to-reach areas of the human body. They stand to revolutionize targeted drug delivery.

Hand-knitted molecules

A research team has succeeded in producing molecules between two microscopically small, movable gold tips - in a sense as a 'hand-knitted' unique specimen. The properties of the molecules can be monitored in real time while they are being produced.
