MIT’S Ingestible origami robot

Imagine eating like a thousand of these, and they go through and eat all the fat in your body. It’d be like liposuction but better! The waste might be a problem though…

They could cut out tumors from your body with no surgery. They could intelligently deliver medicine, targeting specific organs. They could take readings from various parts of your body, and doctors could examine the findings after you excrete them.

Biotech is gettin crazy.
