Will Robots Come To Our Medical Rescue?
Meanwhile, doctors are investigating the use of nanotechnology to fight diseases. Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology believe it may be possible to inject nano-scale robot "soldiers" into the bloodstream to seek out and destroy diseases.
These researchers have created a nano-scale robot that is six times smaller than an amoeba and weighs no more than a few hundred nanograms. While their medical use is decades away, such devices could eliminate the need for harmful drugs.
