…3D printing technology they developed to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots — called microfish — that are efficient swimmers, are chemically powered and magnetically controlled. These proof-of-concept synthetic microfish will inspire a new generation of “smart” microrobots that have diverse capabilities such as detoxification, sensing and directed drug delivery.
