Nanobots being developed capable of detecting disease in the human body

A prototype nanobots is currently being developed that could one day detect disease in humans. These tiny robots are being developed to mimick living creatures. According to the article, the minute devices are called “Cyberplasm” and will be able to join together advanced microelectronics with cutting edge biomimicry (technology inspired by nature) research.

Robotic medical nanodevices controlled by wireless technology

Recently, a Stanford engineer, Ada Poon, lead a project which has created tiny robotic medical devices that are powered by wireless technology. According to Stanford University, the implantable machines are small enough to easily move through veins. These injectable nanobots can carry out medical tasks, gather diagnostics and even deliver drugs into the bloodstream.
