Nanobots or Nanoids or Nanorobots

  • Nanobots are based on Nanotechnology which involves manipulation of matter on atomic and
  • molecular level. Nanobots are devices whose size falls in the range of 0.1-10 micrometres. Not
  • very long back, they were put in the hypothetical realm which means that they had not been brought into reality.
  • But, now researchers have developed nanobots for various purposes – for killing off tumours, for instance.
  • The University of Manchester developed nanobots that can be programmed to act as molecular cargo.
  • Each nanobotcan manipulate a single molecule and is made up of 150 carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen atoms.
  • Scientists have claimed that these can be programmed to perform any function just the way robots in factories are.
  • It is these kind of nanobots which are expected to perform brain scanning as envisioned by Kurzweil.
