Tiny robotic scallops can swim through blood and eyeball fluid to fix you up

Tiny robotic scallops can swim through blood and eyeball fluid to fix you up | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

For years now, scientists have been trying to develop microscopic robots that can swim through bodily fluids and repair damaged cells or deliver medicine. Now, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Germany believe they've got the perfect design -- in the form of scallops so small, they can barely be seen by the naked eye. These micro-robo-scallops move back and forth to swim through blood, eyeball fluids and other liquids inside our body. The scientists believe mimicking the way a true scallop swims is ideal, due to a number of reasons.

Mission Motors, a San Francisco-based maker of electric car components, aims to change that. The company is planning to roll out a street-legal version of its super-powered electric motorbike, the Mission R and Mission RS. The company says it can top out at 150 miles per hour, and go from zero to 60 in three seconds, with no emissions from a 160 horsepower engine. The model with the largest battery, at 17 kilowatt-hours, can ride for 140 miles.
