Nanobots and Organic Cells

  1. Sep 14, 2015 #1
    I have a couple of questions about nanotechnology.

    Are nanobots like organic cells in anyway? Meaning do they perform the same functions as organic cells, in terms of delivering energy within the machine they operate in?

    And what powers nanobots? Do they have their own power supply like a battery or would they need to refuel? And if so would they refuel like a organic cell?

    A very small autonomous robot, typically the size of a biological cell

    After reading the link it seems nanobots and organic cells only have size in common.
