Microbeads To Deliver Medicines in the Body: Microswimmer Robots (w/Video)

With the advancement in the medical field, scientists are trying to develop non-invasive treatment techniques. In one such study carried out by scientists, from Drexel University in Philadelphia, have created a tiny magnetic robot that they believe can be used for targeted drug delivery or conduct non invasive small scale surgeries.

Bacterium Inspired Remote Controlled Microrobots: Biomimicry

Researchers a Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne have developed a technique that can be used for both, fabricating bio-inspired robots and secondly, furnishing them with higher configurations. Their newly constructed platform also helps in examining and researching robot designs along with their various modes of locomotion. Result of their platform is the production of complex yet reconfigurable microrobots – the nanobots can change their own shape by rearranging the connectivity of their parts- with high throughput.

Biomimicry: Roboeel to investigate Oceans of the Solar System

NASA funded robotic eel project is one of the most enticing venture so far. With an aim of delving deep into the ocean-bed of Europa, (Jupiter’s moon), the soft robotic eel is fabricated for scavenging electrical energy from magnetic fields and employing it for creating oxygen and hydrogen so that the machine can generate an outburst, which’ll further help for it’s propulsion. There is still more to it, the bot is sheathed with a soft flexible cover, which is not only stretchable but also electroluminescence.

Controlling bots via Tablet: Multi-Robot System Interface

Controlling dozes of bots at the same time seems to be a Sci-Fi concept but the technology has made its presence felt within some enthusiastic segments of robo scientists. Thinking on the same line of thought, Georgia Tech’s GRITS Lab has fabricated a method of dynamically controlling huge swarms of robo minions by just using just a tablet and a finger or two probably. The idea is to rely on swarm of tiny bots by intuitive controlling than a single big robo-machine.
