In 1977 a Chinese woman with no medical degree anonymously found a malaria cure. 38 years later, she was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine. The 84-year-old Tu shared this year’s Nobel Prize in Medicine with William Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura for their discoveries in battling diseases caused by roundworm parasites.

This miniature origami robot can walk, climb, dig, carry, swim and dissolve into nothing, and it's only the first step. Just wait for the nanobots that will clear clogged arteries.
So what can we do with super tiny self-folding robots? Researchers hope to develop even smaller autonomous robots with additional sensors that can dissolve in water. Such tiny devices could have a variety of medical uses when introduced inside of a human body, maybe zapping cancer cells or cleaning clogged arteries.
It sounds a bit scary having nanobots fixing your body, hopefully they could never take over your body or go haywire like in some sci-fi movie. LOL!
Check out the video below to see this miniature origami robot in action...
