There are a number of different ways couples can increase fertility like in-vitro fertilization or artificial insemination, but these methods aren't always as effective as hoped. As such, the 'Spermbot' is an innovative technological breakthrough created by researchers at the IFW Dresden in Germany to help boost the ability of existing sperm.

When it comes to fertility, it's clearly imperative to look at all the options and angles to choose the best route. The 'Spermbot' technology would help those couples where the man's sperm is simply not strong enough to achieve conception.

Working almost like little motors that would attach to sperm and increase fertility by a generous amount, the 'Spermbot' is an example of how natural processes like reproduction are becoming more medicalized.
