Aquatic robot That could clean water and transport cells

0 9

ScienceDaily reports: “Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology developed a tiny plastic robot, made of responsive polymers, which moves under the influence of light and magnetism. In the future this ‘wireless aquatic polyp’ should be able to attract and capture contaminant particles from the surrounding liquid or pick up and transport cells for analysis in diagnostic devices.”

“The mini robot is inspired by a coral polyp; a small soft creature with tentacles, which makes up the corals in the ocean.”
