    Soft clockwork biobot could dose you with drugs from the inside

    Published on Jan 4, 2017

    A micromachine made from squishy hydrogel clicks forward as a magnet (the dark disc below) drives a component with embedded iron nanoparticles (small black curved piece). With each click, one of six chambers lines up with a hole, so the dose of chemo drug inside the chamber can be released.
    From the lab of Samuel Sia, professor of biomedical engineering at Columbia University. Video by Sau Yin Chin.
