interesting ideas. Imagine it for ophthalmology. Ability to remove a cataract without destroying the lens capsule, then injecting a clear polymer as a synthetic lens. Being what everything is connected you could in theory have a replacement lens that you can focus like an organic lens.
That's so smart!
Gives me a big hero 6 vibe

Nanomachines son.

This was awesome. Perhaps magnetic bacteria are also an interesting field to cover. I would love to know more about that.
When will we get nanomachines?

reminds me of big hero 6
when hiro or hero made micro bot controlled by the brain
You can remove tumors with this!!
Big Hero 6 did it first, only using mind control
So we can actually make a iron man suit, fantastic
