Researchers from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in India have showed that it is possible to make live Chlamydomonas reinhardtii cells rotate while pinned in a laser trap. The energy of a light beam can be used to manipulate and trap cells much like the way wind moves objects a larger scale.
The ultimate goal is to design controllable motored nanomachines, according to the researchers.
