Paul McEuen & Marc Miskin: Tiny Robots w/Giant Potential |


Expand your mind from silly memes and see a future of robots and their potential. Warning Will Robinson, they will have to be controlled and monitored. So to all those tech designers out their, don’t forget humanity. Robots can’t go shopping or do good deeds. Ciao…


Take a trip down the microworld as roboticists Paul McEuen and Marc Miskin explain how they design and mass-produce microrobots the size of a single cell, powered by atomically thin legs — and show how these machines could one day be “piloted” to battle crop diseases or study your brain at the level of individual neurons.
