3D printed microscopic robots to repair internal injuries


Researchers the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia have created a new type of tiny 3D-printed robot that moves by harnessing vibration from piezoelectric actuators, ultrasound sources or even tiny speakers. Swarms of these “micro-bristle-bots” might work together to sense environmental changes, move materials – or perhaps one day repair injuries inside the human body. ( Read more... )
