"Nanomotor to Power Bloodstream Robots"

A tiny motor is in development for robots that could travel your bloodstream to repair damaged cells, tissues and DNA.

The motor will use biological molecules from virus-based proteins to perform a linear opening and closing motion.

Imagine on of those nanorobots mutates or something goes wrong with it and starts destroying your body from the inside!

Anyone played the Metal Gear Solid games? I wonder if nanomachines for communication and instant healing will be a posibility.

I hear ya Greg, that would be rather unpleasant. I'm sure if there is some kind of digital software in control, it could be prevented.
