Scientists in Japan have used gliding bacteria to turn a microscale rotor made of silicon dioxide. The motor device could ultimately be used to drive microrobots.
"We believe that this work will stimulate and encourage a number of researchers from broad disciplines, especially in the field of nanotechnology," said Hiratsuka. "I hope that nanotechnologists would be interested in our approach to integrate biological materials with inorganic microstructures."
