The Future of Korean Science and Technology

Abstract:
In 2020, robots the size of a nanometer (one-billionth of a meter) will travel around blood vessels, clean them, and heal the damaged areas just like car technicians.

Also, “nano capsules” will circulate one’s body, encountering pathogens such as viruses, and eradicate them by emitting drugs contained inside.

Telemedical services will be materialized with the emergence of pill-shaped “biochips” by 2025. Taking the pill will transmit your health condition wirelessly to the hospital.
