Smallest Robot

A new movie, I Robot, opens July 16th with a vision of lifelike robots that do all our work for us. Amazingly, one nanotechnologist has made a start: he's built an incredibly tiny walking robot out of living material, DNA. As this ScienCentral News video reports, this minute robot eventually could help design drugs, molecule by molecule, to fight specific diseases in individual patients. (With Video)
