It's looking more and more likely that tiny robots could one day be swimming and crawling through your body, delivering drugs or scrubbing out your arteries. But the human body is full of wildly different environments, so any robots exploring them need to be able to adapt on the fly. Now, researchers at EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed micro-robots that can automatically morph in respons
It has been an exciting year for medical science, a field generally not known for giant revolutionary breakthroughs, but rather quieter, small, piecemeal discoveries that build on existing knowledge to improve our health and well being. Alongside new discoveries in gut-brain communication and the genesis of Alzheimer's disease, the FDA made massively symbolic leaps in the growing acceptanc

While research is booming in the field of ingestible medical implants, a major challenge still to be overcome is working out how to power these tiny devices when they are deep inside a human body. Traditional batteries are large, contain toxic chemicals, and need to be periodically replaced, but new research from MIT and Brigham and Women's Hospital has demonstrated a way to power implante is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
