3D-printed swimming microrobots can sense and remove toxins


Key points from article :

Fish shape nanobots manufactured using microscale continuous optical printing (µCOP) at much smaller resolution than traditional 3D printing. Devices created from three different types of functional nanoparticles allowing them to be customized to suit their intended purpose.

Self-propelled. Chemically powered. Magnetically steered. Detect and destroy toxins.

The study was published in the Advanced Materials journal.
