Medical millibots for less-invasive surgeries moving out of proof-of-concept studies.

Seeking to advance minimally invasive medical treatments, researchers from University of Houston and Harvard Medical School have proposed using millibots, driven by magnetic potential energy from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners.  The researchers described the work in a paper presented this week during ICRA, the conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. The team state that the technology could
