Here is another for my “Weird Science” category. Straight from the field of nanotechnology (miniaturized everything!). Nanotechnology is this amazing field that allows us to minaturize all kinds of stuff to make our lives easier and better. (I have a bridge I can sell you!) I have a particular interest in the field of nanomedicine. Nanomedicine uses artificial intelligence and robotics along with nanotechnology to heal. Medicine in miniature, to deliver drugs and treatments right to the site. It is like being able to swallow your own tiny doctor!
Look like a lego? Think again. It’s a nano-robot!
