Virtual 3D nanorobots could lead to real cancer-fighting technology

Abstract:
From eliminating the side effects of chemotherapy to treating Alzheimer's disease, the potential medical applications of nanorobots are vast and ambitious. In the past decade, researchers have made many improvements on the different systems required for developing practical nanorobots, such as sensors, energy supply, and data transmission.

But there is still a great deal of work to do before tiny "molecular machines" can begin traveling through our arteries for diagnosing or treating our ailments. To try to pick up the pace, a group of researchers has recently developed an innovative approach to help in the research and development of nanorobots - virtual reality.
