Researchers from the Micro/Nanophysics Research Laboratory at Australia's Monash University are working on microbot motors designed to swim through the human bloodstream. This tiny motor would be able to power a probe swimming through blood to make current methods of minimally invasive surgery such as keyhole surgery safer and more effective. With the right sensor equipment attached to the microbot motor, the surgeon's view of, for example, a patient's troubled artery can be enhanced and the ability to work remotely also increases the surgeon's dexterity. Check out video below but sorry no sound for this video.
