Living hybrid microbots can decontaminate water.

Biohybrid microrobots are composed of a living organism integrated with artificial materials. Biohybrid microbots take advantage of the natural actuation and sensing mechanisms of motile microorganisms, such as bacteria and algae which could one day be used to deliver disease-fighting drugs or attack tumors in the body. In contrast to their synthetic counterparts, microorganism-powered microrobots can sense and respond to
