What is a nanorobot? Also called nanoid, nanobot, nanite, nanomite, or nanomachine. A machine ranging in or close to the scale of a nanometer (1 billionth of a meter). Or a machine that allows precision interactions with nano-sized objects or at a nano-scale.
History First conceptualized by Albert Hibbs and Richard Feynman. “There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom.” “Swallow the doctor.” Relatively new field. First Inventor was Adriano Cavalcanti.
Nanocar Developed by Rice University in 2005. Uses a Scanning Tunneling Microscope it can drive molecules is a certain direction to create propulsion. Uses buckyballs for wheels.
Utility Fog First proposed by Dr. John Hall in 1993 for a seat belt replacement in cars. Can be used on a massive scale to theoretically create any sort of structure.
Bio Chip Nanorobots designed for medical purposes such as surgeries, drug-delivery, and diagnosis. Currently being created, yet to be fully implemented. UCF is currently using and teaching these nanotechnologies.
Nubots Short for Nucleic Acid Robots. DNA based machines. Can be activated by proteins and other molecules of DNA. Useful in in-vitro drug delivery.
Bacteria-based Nanorobots Propulsion is a problem for most nanorobotic designs. Uses a bacteria as a host and the flagellum for propulsion. Magnetic fields can be used to control the direction of such machines. MIT research for direct chemotherapy to cancer cells.
