Scientists from Israel's prestigious Technion University, teamed with a researcher from the College of Judea and Samaria, announced that they have developed a micro robot that can move within the bloodstream. Miniaturizing remote controlled robots in order to enable them to access virtually every part of the body is one of the Holy Grails of medicine. This breakthrough could enable the pinpoint delivery of cancer destroying medication without all the associated side effects of chemotherapy among many other applications.
