American scientists have created a chassis for microscopic medical robots that will be implanted into humans


This year has become a year of a surge in mass fears that the authorities and corporations are planning to do bad things to people, namely, to microchip the population in order to do whatever they want with them. We tried to give this rumor a feasible rebuff, but science does not sleep and creates such miracles that make you believe in the impossible. For example, in the ability to inject a whole army of microrobots under the skin with one injection.

Scientists from Cornell University in New York talked about micron-sized robots. The researchers set out to create the smallest electronic-mechanical devices that could independently move through the body and even living human cells for medical purposes. This can be targeted delivery of drugs, which is vital for the fight against cancer, or even purely mechanical work to clean or repair blood vessels.

The main problem in the creation of micrometer-sized mechanisms is the system of movement of microrobots and their autonomy. This is exactly the problem that scientists from the United States are trying to solve. They are currently developing and testing a robotic chassis that measures less than 0.1mm – thinner than the average human head hair. The chassis does not have its own energy sources and any electronic components. But it has four microscopic legs and a drive to control them. Thanks to this, the robotic chassis can move in the environment where it is placed. A single subcutaneous injection can accommodate up to a million of these mechanisms.

The chassis moves thanks to light-sensitive chains on its back. To do this, scientists send laser pulses at them, which activate the front or rear “legs” of the chassis. In fact, this is a puppet, for the movement of which it is necessary to create certain conditions. So if you are afraid of immediate “chipping” with something like this, then you can sleep peacefully. Together with the coronavirus vaccine, you will definitely not be given something like that. At this stage in the development of technology, this makes no sense. In ten or twenty years, things may not be so simple. But we still have to live before that.
