Could injectable microrobots one day run in your veins?

London (AFP) – Scientists have created an army of microscopic four-legged robots too small to see with the naked eye that walk when stimulated by a laser and could be injected into the body through hypodermic needles, a study said Wednesday.   Microscopic robotics are seen as having an array of potential uses, particularly in medicine, and US researchers said the new robots offer “the potential to explore biological environments”. One of the main challenges in the development of these cell-sized robots has been combining control circuitry and moving parts in such a small structure.The robots d…
