Scientists create Transformers-style robot which swims through the body

The shape-shifting device is controlled by magnets and can crawl, spin and swim into narrow spaces. It can also change direction at any moment.

Robots aren't just taking over in our daily work—they're taking over our bodies. Or, at least, they could be soon.

Nature communications reported that Scientists have created a Transformers-style robot inspired by the Japanese paper-folding art of origami, which can now travel through the human body to cure diseases..

The shape-shifting device is controlled by magnets and can crawl, spin and swim into narrow spaces. It can also change direction at any moment.

Called the “millibot” it can carry payloads directly to a tumor, blood clot or infection and can dispense drugs or investigate inner workings. Scientists hope the machine will revolutionize medicine, replacing pills or injections that can cause life-threatening side effects.

The robot resembles “Transformers” characters that disguise themselves by turning into vehicles.

It provides control for a non-invasion operation, moves “elegantly and speedily” over an organ’s surfaces and powers through body fluids.
