Subject: nanocopters (self assembling)

from the BBC (again)


The first microscopic "helicopters", which could one day carry out medical tasks
inside the body, have been built and test-driven by scientists.
The devices, no bigger than a virus particle, could eventually move around
the human body, ministering to its needs or dispensing drugs.
The metal rotors of the tiny machines are powered by the body's natural fuel,
a chemical called ATP.
