How tiny can robots get, and can they help with needs of the human body? This is what a team of researchers led by the University of Tel-Aviv hope to better understand as they examined the development of a cell-sized micro-robot capable of identifying and capturing other cells while being controlled and navigated using electric and magnetic mechanisms. They discovered this new micro-robot can perform a variety of tasks, including navigating between cells within a biological sample, determining if the cell is healthy or dying, and even capture and inject a drug or genetic material into the captured cell, as well.
