Nanomotors that are controlled, for the first time, inside living cells | KurzweilAI | Tech | Scoop.it

Penn State University chemists and engineers have, for the first time, placed tiny synthetic motors inside live human cells in a lab, propelled them with ultrasonic waves, and steered them magnetically.

The Penn State nanomotors are the closest so far to a “Fantastic Voyage” concept (without the miniature people).

The nanomotors, which are rocket-shaped gold rods ~300 nanometers in diameter and ~3 microns long, move around inside the cells, spinning and battering against the cell membrane.

The nanomotors are activated by resonant ultrasound operating at ~4 MHz, and show axial propulsion as well as spinning.

that shouldn't even be an option of theirs. Of course your information will be shared on the inernet but it's a person's right to show it or not, especially if it's being used without permission to advertise.

Google can allow to do any thing to safe guard yourself.

The fact that Google can do something like this is worrying for those people who do not wish to be found by somebody, I hope that this news as to how to opt-out makes its way across the globe quickly- Justine Pearce
