Scientists have used a tiny ‘Capsule Robot’ to successfully perform intricate manoeuvres inside the large intestine. The capsule is guided by an external magnet attached to an 18-millimetre robotic arm. Researchers hope the capsule robot could be used safely and effectively in the future on humans to identify and remove pre-cancerous lesions and tumours detected … Continue reading Capsule Robot performs intricate manoeuvres inside large intestine
