  • It was made up of a swarm of microscopic robots - so-called nanobots - that could change its function and shape at will.

    A tiny robot swarm

  • For example, have devices called the nanobots that can actually perform functions inside our bloodstream, augment our immune system, destroy pathogens and cancer cells, enhance our red blood cells, for example, so that we can breathe better.

  • NIST's goal in coordinating competitions between the world's smallest robots-known as nanobots (nanoscale robots) - is to show the feasibility and accessibility of technologies for fabricating MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS), tiny mechanical devices built onto semiconductor chips and measured in micrometers (millionth of a meter).

    Impact Lab

  • The best part is that these so-called nanobots may soon have the ability to self assemble into larger, fully functioning robots.

    Planet Atheism

  • In the first episode of "Dean of Invention" (at 10), Kamen explores the world of "nanobots," a medical technology in which tiny robots enter the bloodstream and kill cancerous cells.

    TV HIGHLIGHTS

  • By 2045, Kurzweil estimates, we will use computers to enhance our intelligence, and "nanobots" — microscopic machines — to roam our bloodstream, stomping out diseases before they can spread.

    I, Robot

  • This hideous piece of crap is pretty much unwatcheable, except for the times you hear a disgusting noise and look up to see a cloud of swarming flylike "nanobots" swarming around somebody and melting them in a gruesome, ultracheap CGI way.
