Slightly off topic,
We measure magnetic fields in Tesla.
Nikola Tesla is otherwise ignored in the physics worlds.
I Dare You to create a positive presentation regarding the greatest mind of all Time.
(Or is Tesla a dirty word in the physics world?)

Did your channel ever respond to this video question?

Absolute Brilliance.

I love it.
look I exist
i need to find my ps3 now

All we need is to be able to control them with out heads then we good to go
kevin layfield
Soooo...who came first these guys or Disney.. 😂
Who executed the project better the lil robot fighting kid... Or the guys with 10s of 1000s of $$ in school debt
Nano-machines son!
the Simpson show tv
Why a ps3 controler😂😂?

This could have a potential application in cancer treatment, because if they can target where the micro bots go, they wouldn't have the problem that is associated with chemotherapy, in that the radiation hits good cells too. The micro bots could target only the cancer cells. This is pretty cool technology.
You mean, Micro-bots from Big Hero 6?

I am super sceptical. Seems like wishful thinking that this could work precisely in a chaotic system like a body.
So at what point can I inject these into my bloodstream and become a superhero?
Tavian Armstrong
Ahh someday someone will actually be able to say *NANOMACHINES SON*
Douglas Meyer
I can’t believe this dude is worth 17 mil...
Who else thought that the top comment was going to be about Big Hero 6?

I sure did lol
*Its called Nano-tech you like it?*
im kind of scared
