Scientists are Building Tiny Cancer-Fighting Robots to Combat Disease

Scientists have been working so hard to integrate robotics into intricate medical treatments. Well, due to the reason, doctors now have tiny devices that are excessively used to inject drugs into an individual’s eye. Moreover, such devices are also used on areas which are hard to reach.

The good news is, scientists have recently come up with an effective way to combat cancer using magnetized swarm of microscopic robots.

A team of researchers at Phillips Innovative Technologies in Hamburg, Germany is the mind behind this innovation. They have created a way to place each robot in a swarm and provide them specific tasks through magnetic fields.

“Our method may enable complex manipulations inside the human body,” said study lead author Jurgen Rahmer, a physicist at Philips Innovative Technologies in Hamburg, Germany.

Such a group of scientists believes that treating cancer with this technology can protect healthy tissues and possibly lessen harmful side effects. But, I think it’s too early to say anything until we have some real-life examples.

McDonald’s Has Re-Engineered Straw for Shamrock Shake

It seems that McDonald’s is keen to make a solid impact with its scrumptious Shamrock Shake. And to boost its marketing campaign, the famous restaurant chain has decided to introduce a re-engineered straw.

Yes, you have heard that right!

The straw is not something out of this world thing in terms of its design and functionality. However, it has been created with a legitimate purpose. The Shamrock Shake is a combination of chocolate milkshake with a sizzling touch of mint flavor in it. Which means, enjoying both of the flavors together is merely impossible until the shack melts down. So, to overcome this problem, a team of robotic and aerospace engineers have reinvented the straw that you can see in the image above.

It comes with four holes that surely allow you to enjoy a delectable combination of chocolate shake with minty seasoning. But unfortunately, a fewer quantity of straws will be available in the market. Therefore, McDonald’s wants you to keep visiting its website to know where and how you can get the straw.
