this is one of those blow your mind facts 🤯 literally love this so much!
#tdil scientists that specialise in nanobots are currently working on robotic red blood cells 😱
i’ll be honest, before recently stumbling upon a few articles and videos about nanobots, i had no idea just how far research into nanobots had actually come … don’t believe me? take a look at this video 🙈
anyway, after watching that video, i decided to look further into the manmade red blood cell that he mentions 😳 it turns out that these mechanical red blood cells are called ‘respirocyte’ and research has been underway for a real long time.
now, for those of you that don’t know, nanotechnology aims to create tiny tiny robots that are around 0.1-10 micrometres … for scale – one micrometre is one millionth of a metre! #mindblown 🤯
it’s a pretty amazing field of study to be honest … like, scientists have even been able to use nanobots to kill off cancerous tumours 🙌🏻
the above is a noble cause, i’m sure that you’ll agree 😁 but you may find yourself asking why scientists are trying to make a robotic red blood cell 🤔
well, they believe that a respirocyte will actually be a hella lot more efficient at transporting oxygen than real red blood cells … like, some even say that they expect future humans to be able to swim under water for hours or run at top speed for ages! 😱
want to know something really crazy? the sources that i’ve read reckon that we’ll see usable, real-life, respirocyte technology within the next 15 years 😳
pretty scary isn’t it!? like, scientists are creating tiny little robots that are so small that you can’t even see them 😶 until this bit of research, i didn’t realise nanotechnology was actually a successful legit thing … science fiction films are coming true people! 😫
this one was interesting wasn’t it? 🤓 we should have more like this 👍🏻
laters 😘 #tdil
i feel totally under-qualified to write about stuff like this 😂 want to read something i actually know about? just go ->here<-
