How small is nano ?
They are just tiny fractions of the width of
a human hair. It includes the
development of extremely small
particles, along with devices and
machines which work on this small
level, such as nanobots, robots which
are potentially small enough to go
inside a human cell.
There are many interesting nanodevices
being developed that have a potential to
improve cancer detection, diagnosis and
The robot detects the cause of your
fever, travels to the appropriate system
and provides a dose of medication
directly to the infected area.
Nanodevices are small enough to enter
cells for action. They may also be able
to enter and monitor cells within a living
In the future, these molecular structures
could be the basis for the regeneration
or replacement of body parts that are
currently lost to infection, accident, or
disease (such as cancer cells).
Below is a picture of a
nanorobot performing a
