July 9, 2009: Creepy Robot

I know it doesn't really look so creepy...
it really doesn't look like much at all.



But;

Quote:
SCIENTISTS FROM Israel's Technion University have unveiled a tiny robot, made using Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology, purportedly able to crawl through a person's veins in order to diagnose and potentially treat artery blockage and cancer.

The little robot - with a diameter of just one millimeter - has neither engine nor onboard controls, instead being propelled forward by a magnetic field wielded on it from outside the patient's body.
Yup, that's creepy, reminds me of the fish that swim up urethras.

Quote:
As if getting under people's skin wasn't enough, Technion researchers say they're also looking at putting the ant-like creature to work in urban water distribution systems, to look for any leaks that need plugging.
See! See! I told you they would go for the plumbing!

eeewwwwww......

It gives me the heebie jeebies just thinking about that thing inside my body. Looks like a bot fly.



Sundae  Thursday Jul 9 07:58 AM

Phew.
I'm not worried by things that don't look creepy.

I couldn't sleep in a room with a clown doll.
But the CCTV network in this country doesn't keep me awake at night.

Well where's the freaking Rosie the Robot to cook dinner and clean? They're going in the wrong direction.



Sundae  Thursday Jul 9 08:28 AM

Where's my bloody jet-car?



Shawnee123  Thursday Jul 9 08:55 AM

Ch'yeah...they promised.



deek  Thursday Jul 9 09:18 AM

All I can picture is the tiny robot going into Neo's belly button in The Matrix



birdclaw  Thursday Jul 9 10:11 AM

Yikes. I see this as being a form of torture when mixed with an MRI machine.



Sundae  Thursday Jul 9 10:12 AM

Hey, if this replaces a speculum... happy days.



Shawnee123  Thursday Jul 9 10:31 AM

Fantastic Voyage



TheMercenary  Thursday Jul 9 12:51 PM

Soon they will have things like that which will fly through key holes and see what is going down on the otherside.. Little remote spy bots.



Shawnee123  Thursday Jul 9 01:08 PM

Do you mean like modern day keyholes, or those big giant ones for skeleton keys, which you can put your eyeball up to anyway?

Ha, never occurred to me before, but you don't see big keyholes anymore, with the little swinging cover to keep out the draft, it's all Yale keys these days, young 'uns, don't know you're born.......

[Fletch] C,mon, it's all bio bots these days boys. [/Lives]

Hasn't anybody read Counting Heads by David Marusek? All you'll need is a few hours in a HALVENE tank to flush them all out.



Gravdigr  Friday Jul 10 05:16 PM

Funny how they got bots that can do things like this, but no one can get a coffee stain outta my t-shirt.



capnhowdy  Saturday Jul 11 11:30 AM

Hell, they could top those things in 1987
