These Bacterium-Mimicking Microbots May Be The Future Of Medicine

(Tech Times) A common feature of sci-fi is the usage of nanomachines — small machines/robots whose dimensions are measured nanometer — in order to provide various benefits to the human body. Thanks to a recently-published research paper, there is now strong evidence that suggests such machines — albeit not necessarily as small — won't be a thing of fiction for much longer.
Researchers … have designed a prototype shape-shifting robot that imitates a bacterium whose tail folds away upon entering the bloodstream…
[T]he paper detalls that there is now a way to create robots equipped with the means to transport drugs to specific locations throughout the body via the bloodstream, as well as to provide the help needed when in the middle of difficult operations.
