January is always the month for starting your New Year resolutions, Exercise ..no doubt being one of them. But what about the mental determination in keeping that body healthy and staying away from the Bagels & Doughnuts…..
……Ever thought that tech could assist your new held desires?
Well… in the not too distant future what if you could install nanobots into your blood system to automatically and autonomously clear your arteries, thereby preventing heart disease with an army of tiny groups of magnetically charged particles that band together to break up clogged vessels…Imagine that.? An international team of researchers from the U.S., South Korea and Switzerland are already collaborating on this very task, and this year, they’ll begin trials on mice.
The nanorobot molecules will be able to deliver drugs to soften clogged arteries, then drill in to break up blockages. An MRI machine serves as the command and control center, as well as the power source for the robots; the robots are controlled by harnessing the power of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the tunnel-like machines more commonly used for X-ray imaging in hospitals. Working with the nanobots, they both steer and observe the magnetically charged bots as they navigate their way around inside the body; blasting unwanted clogs in the canals. If all goes well, human trials will commence by 2019.
As powerful computing capabilities continue to dematerialize and demonetize, it won’t be long until we have an army of robot surgeons inside our bodies, detecting cancers and unblocking arteries keeping us healthy and extending the human life cycle .
One to ponder over.
To your health
